Talkback: How to choose secateurs

Posted: 15/08/2014 at 08:25

Felco are undeniably good (the best, it could be argued).....but a bit of an indulgence I feel (unless a present, of course) as there are extremely good secateurs available at a fraction of the price.

Not for me, Lesley, but it's amazing what people see into formations such as clouds.

Good idea to check fruit cages regularly for birds

Excellent thread. I used to net my raspberries until a few years ago when a beautiful blackbird became ensnared and was dead before I could free it. Never again, I made a promise to myself that this must never happen again and I have never netted since.

Oddly enough, I've never noticed that it made much difference anyway....I certainly have more fruit than I know what to do with.......we just share.

Sweet peas

Hi, Anna.....yes sweet peas are poisonous, they contain lathyrogens and should not be eaten.

Not seen them since getting back from rehab.  

What peas are the best

Tell you what peeps, give this one a go and you won't be disappointed....It's an old Victorian variety called 'Ne Plus Ultra'. Needs some sturdy support, as it can grow to 5ft tall.

An excellent pea from every point of view.
