Plum Codling Moth battle

Posted: 30/12/2014 at 17:20

Sorry for hijacking your post Robert, thanks for the info from everyone, going to send for some Winter Wash and look up worm tea spray. I know more about the life cycle of the codling moth now. I can spend ages looking for info on internet, it's so much quicker getting the correct info from u all on here, thank you. Think its important to keep ground clear of leaves, isn't it? Got few to pick up when weather bit milder next few days.

I have some grubs eating into my apples, don't know which grub, I've just read a bit about Nemesys Grow Your Own after reading this thread, it says to apply in September/October but the damage to the apples has already happened by then. Is there anything I can apply before then to help next years crop? l also have a new Victoria Plum tree so that will probably become affected as well. Thought nematodes would be more expensive than what I have just found on internet, I'll be sending for some.

CATS

I have had cats pooing on my back lawn for many years, a friend who had cats kept telling me they bury it, no they don't! One morning after working a night duty I cleaned up 8 deposits of it, the smell of it made me wretch, good job I had an empty stomach. I hardly get any now on my lawn, but keep finding it in my soil. The dog poo on pavement at front of my house is another subject! 

Can I grow more raspberry canes from the seeds from my raspberries?

I thought perhaps the autumn raspberries may reproduce less than the summer ones

Hi, I have had a good crop of summer raspberries, they don't get diseased, they don't get eaten by birds etc, unlike some of my other fruit and veg, and now I have some large tasty Autumn fruiting raspberries but only a few canes of them. I don't know the name, but think I got some from Aldi once, is Autumn Bliss a large fruit? The question is, can I grow any more by sowing the seeds from the fruit? I'm sure my summer raspberries grow from seeds in my lawn etc. Also what are the best large fruited autumn and summer ones?

Thanks Lyn, i've made up a new basket with them, squeezed a lot in, i'll see how it goes! As for the Bizzie Lizzie (r is it Busy Lizzie), it says on the packaging produced in UK for Aldi, thought the plants may have come from Germany, so someone prob still growing them in UK to sell, i'll see what happens to it.
