If you clap your hands loudly they run away.

Can you suggest a plant?

I'm not very good at pruning  Do you think pruning helps figs to fruit and how much and when do you do it?

aym, have you put antihistamine or Hydrocortisone cream on your bites? I find if I put something on straight away they stop itching.

Gardens we have visited 2016

We are going around the Norfolk gardens, on and off, when we are there, this year. We went to Somerleyton Hall in June, interesting house, lovely white garden that they use for weddings, but on the whole I was a bit disappointed, not really a gardener's garden, more a park. The leaflet they gave out said various bits were due to be re-planted in 2015 but they obviously hadn't been.

My fig tree is now 3 years old, planted in the ground against a wall and hasn't had fruit since I bought it when it had 3 figs. A lot of fig trees here in France are planted in the ground and have loads of fruit, my son's did and he never fed or watered his. Mine is now 2 - 3 times the size of both yours.

Oh dear, what's happened in France? We've come back from 5th Anniversary lunch in a pretty local town, jam packed with English and Dutch tourists. Good lunch. Off to Google to find out.
