Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 08/04/2013 at 00:05

Lovely day today. Rotavated veg garden - the bit I hadn't done already. Planted potatoes and lettuces. Broad beans just coming up, mange tout peas and onion sets growing. OH mowed lawns. Dug a bit more of the new bed. Planted some poppies that I bought as plugs last autumn. Now it's bedtime. Goodnight all

Talkback: Growing autumn-fruiting raspberries

Posted: 07/04/2013 at 23:50

I think you need a long summer for autumn raspberries to fruit twice successfully. Mine do, but I live in Dordogne. But some varieties don't do well here because it can be too hot. I grow one called "September". They tend to march around the veg garden and not stay where I planted them.

What type of tree is this?

Oh dear, it's not a very big photo. It just looks like a tree with autumn foliage, could be a flowering cherry.

What species of tree is this?

Posted: 07/04/2013 at 23:42

What about a description, or, even better, a photo?

What has happened???

Sam, you are so brave and you've done so much to your garden, incredible. Is your own business also to do with horses?

I get brambles in my shrubs because birds eat wild blackberries and then poo out the seeds when sitting in the shrubs! I mention that because Sam talked about brambles.

I find it very hard to believe that anyone has been asked to disown anyone else. I think there must have been misunderstandings. Apart from obvious "trolls" (few and far between) everyone on this forum has been nice and helpful and often funny as well.

12 metre border ideas!!!

Have a look at this site. They specialise in hedges and there are several evergreen shrubs with photos there. What about Cotoneaster Franchtii? It also has red berries for the birds. Plant a mixture of evergreens repeating them along the row. Plant about a metre apart.

Photinia is a bush and a plant! But really it is known as a shrub. Eleagnus is another good one and Eleagnus Gilt Edge has green and yellow leaves. Choisya is another, don't know if it's on that site it can spread out a bit.

They are beautiful fairies. I have a fairy too, reading a book, but it was cast in concrete by a local lady and not very expensive, a lot smaller. She sits on a low stone wall under a tree in my garden.
