Sorry, forgot the link.

2 year old fruit tree

Sorry I'm not an expert, but I'm sure it will need pruning to keep it to the right shape so here is a link to the RHS pruning apple trees site.

Also if I reply it will push your post up and someone more expert may see it.

Planting in winter

Posted: 07/11/2013 at 21:14

Still time to plant bulbs for a pretty spring. They can go under your new trees. The right time for tree, shrub and rose planting from now to March.

I hope there are some jeans left in Marks & Spencers when I arrive in England. One of the reasons for going! French jeans are hipsters and fall off when I walk and I hate belts.

Hope you sleep OK Matty, with your poor post dentist head.

Hope Gilly feels better tomorrow. I've just had a cold and now OH has got it.

Yes, it is. Thank you. Going to see King Lear in Chichester. Will be seeing friends and family. If we get to the GC in Newhaven will ring Bev (Potty Gardener). Be nice to see her again. May not have computer access, DIL's wasn't working in September. We only have a small netbook in Eastbourne. Going Ryan Air, can't take laptop.

Chaos this afternoon, 3 plumbers with 2 white vans (trying to mend boiler, should have come on Tuesday), oil delivery man with big lorry (should have come this morning) and hay farmer with tractor and trailor with 20 x 200kg bales of hay. Of course hay farmer had to drive on the lawn around the turning circle at the end of the drive, now a sea of mud.

Look on Google, there are various types of growing bags for that. One problem is watering, keeping it moist and it mustn't cause dampness on house walls.

Morning all. I haven't got Christmas smilies either and I have a laptop.

You sound a nice person Clarington.

Just shifted 4 barrow loads manure into the veg garden and 3 garden trailer loads (each about 4 barrow loads) of mud and manure from the front of the winter horse shelter onto a manure heap. Knackered, shoulders ache. The joys of horse owning in the country! Looking after daughter's 2 horses too as she was sent to the north of France for work.

Gosh, Clarington, I thought you were a young one! (only 37 years to retirement) That sounds as though you are sticking up for retired parents. I love my children dearly and they don't go on about inheritance, but I've read so much recently about parents "spending the children's inheritance".
