Deviding blackcurrant bushes

Posted: 13/07/2014 at 14:47

Hello

I have just taken over an allotment and on it there are two very large blackcurrant bushes approx 5Ft high by 6ft wide. I am wanting to move them to a new fruit area on the allotment.

Is it possible to lift and divide large established bushes? Any info appreciated

I have a similar problem but they also attack peas beans and the roots of newly planted brassicas, I now water in everything with Jeyes fluid it does not stop them but slows them down to give the plants a chance to establish

I think they are called pollen beetles I had them last year if you shake the flowers outdoors to get rid of them you should be ok

I too am growing cucamelon for the first time.

It is in a small barrel in the greenhouse and has grown many stems to about four foot high, the flowers are very small with minute fruits behind, is this correct any info on correct growing feeding etc would be appreciated

I have a Stella cherry tree in the garden planted about three years ago, this spring it was covered in flower which eventually set fruit.

Now all the fruit has fallen off any info would be appreciated

Thanks for all the info

Some of the seeds were in a propagator some just on the shelf in a potting shed some of the latter were the ones that have germinated.

I am in the NE and the weather has been warm for the last week or so

Has anyone had trouble with sweetcorn this year?

I have planted two packets of seed from different suppliers and different varieties in total about 70 seeds, these were planted in pots of compost but I have only got 7 plants when i check the other seed they appear swollen but are very soft to the touch.

Any Ideas please
