Raspberry Problem

Posted: 10/02/2015 at 21:26

Do you water them enough? Raspberries are quite thirsty. Are the flowers covered in insects, especially bees, for pollination? Mine are buzzing when the flowers are out. Then they need feeding, I use rose fertiliser, and watering.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Another sunny day. I spent part of it up a ladder (again, and I hate heights) pruning an old apple tree.

Looks lovely whatever it is

Does Dove really go to bed that early or does she go off and watch TV?

Just in time for sowing Bekkie 

Went to vet's. Tigger hadn't got a sore tummy anymore so the cortisone must be working. All treatment is palliative, he's too old and his heart isn't strong enough for an operation. But now he's had proper food I don't think he'll want to go back to tinned food. Has just wopped down minced beef and rice!

Have pruned the last apple tree, but Monsieur the log man pruned the other four! But it meant going up a ladder again. He did the taller ones though.

Spring Bulbs not flowering

Depends on the hellebore. My Lenten ones aren't out yet.

Morning all.

I found Edd's post hard to understand at first too. Good advice from Dove, as always. Stick together as a couple and share the problems or problems can drive you apart. I sometimes found it hard to understand first OH's problems as he was bi-polar and I am boringly down to earth, but you have to help each other whether you understand or not.

I'm way south, in France, but it's too early for anything but snowdrops yet.

That place looks great for lunch, Dove. We think we'll go there in July. So many nice places to see and several gardens as well as the coast.

Actually managed to get outside in the sunshine today. Pruned an old neglected grapevine on the south wall of the house.

RB, the rest of them aren't in bud yet, just those.

Hurray, lovely sunny day! Pruned old neglected grape vine, not pruned for 2 years, on south wall of the house. Sap didn't run, so it wasn't too late. Also pruned Diana clematis in the same area, or rather, cut most of it down - group 3.
