Require clarification regarding feeding established fruit trees & bushes...

Posted: 28/01/2014 at 15:43

Raspberries are fruit bushes and they need feeding in Spring. I give mine organic fertiliser in March and mulch with rotted manure.

Hello PoddingtonP

Wow, Toblerone cheesecake, never had it, sounds yummy.

Lily, I haven't seen a sky like that for ages and ages. Raining here in sunny Dordogne, has been for weeks.

Quiet day, did ironing, planned which bedding plants, watched Place in the Sun, Home or Away (while ironing) and Escape to the Country, dyed hair (honey, chestnut, translated from French!). Deleted about 200 emails in inbox.

If it had a shed there are there concrete foundations underneath stopping the water draining away? It may be that the ground is just too wet because of all the rain this winter and will be better later. Have you dug in any compost? Compost and manure are better than sand for improving clay.

Morning all. Too wet to garden. Spring doesn't look round the corner here, can't see round the corner, too grey.

House not too bad as tidied before weekend because of guests. Shall have a quiet day planning the garden and looking at plug plant catalogue. May dye hair.
