raspberry--how-long-do-they-last-

Posted: 09/08/2013 at 14:10

I have some 4 year old Glenn Ample.   This year the fruits were not very big,  although there was plenty of them.   The fruits last year were a good size.

Should the rsapberry canes be replaced after 3 years ?  I have fed them and so am a bit suprised that they are so small !

Thanks

Ideas for shading plants please

Posted: 19/07/2013 at 12:06

Now that we, in the South of England, are encountering these very high temperatures has anybody any tips for the shading of plants ?

I was wondering if the use of fleece could be one ... although I'd have thought it would just raise the temperature of the plants inside.

Thanks

I've just noted scale insects on my climbing rose.

Is there a simple way of getting rid of them without using insecticide ?

Thanks,

Apple Trees losing thier leaves

Posted: 18/07/2013 at 12:57

I have several apple trees around my garden.

I've just noticed that several of them are losing a significant portion of their leaves.

Could this be a symptom of the drought ?

Thanks

Invisible something eating my roses

Posted: 18/07/2013 at 12:52

Could it be deer ?  Not sure if they eat roses but they're quite partial to most things !

 

My sister has one that eats all her plants !

Greenhouse tomatoes : Pollination

Posted: 23/05/2013 at 12:46

This is my first year of growing tomatoes in a greenhouse.

As there are no bees in greenhouses do I need to manually pollinate the flower trusses ?  If so do I need to buy some sort of solution ?

Thanks
