I stayed indoors and stuck photos from 2011 in the album. But if it carries on raining I'll have to join you in it! Hope you don't get colds.

Geoff, how come your petunias are coming up when you always advise not to start sowing until March?

Bjay, have you seen this website? It's all about fairies and plants. Click on a letter and it will give you the plants starting with that letter that have something to do with fairies.

That heuchera looks delightful. I wonder if it'll be in a GC when we go to England in April.

Feeding Bulbs That Have Gone Over

I plant mine in the garden when the weather is OK to work in and I dig in a bit of general organic fertiliser.

I used to watch the gardening channel on Sky. They showed lots of old GWs with Geoff Hamilton and garden design competions with Chris Beardshaw. I miss it. Keep forgetting AZ because I feed horses before going to church.

Frost & apple trees

Posted: 10/02/2013 at 15:47

I think the problem was more likely to be lack of pollinating insects because of the weather, it happens as well when there is a lot of rain at flowering time. Apple trees are pretty hardy. The flowers will drop off if not pollinated anyway. Is there another apple tree near you that pollinates your Braeburn? You can't grow fruit on a lone apple tree, it needs another of the right pollinating group.
