Preventing birds eating strawberries

Please think too that birds can become ensnared in netting, with disastrous (for them) consequences. 

Cutting raspberries back?

Never tried that, tiger....but I'll will give it a go.

We can all learn from others experiences.

Cutting raspberries back?

Posted: 28/05/2016 at 09:37

All autumn fruiting raspberry canes should be cut back to soil level in February......the reason being they fruit on canes produced on the current year's growth.

Summer fruiting raspberries produce fruit on growth produced in the previous year. So these should be pruned in autumn or after fruiting has finished. 

Remove to ground level all canes that have fruited this year and choose & retain from the current year's (new) strong canes about 6in apart, to provide next year's fruit.....cut out remaining canes to ground level.

This is what I had in mind.

Thanks, yarrow.....I thought the car streaky rear lights indicated a long exposure. I'm pleased you're prepared to experiment with your camera's settings, otherwise  I can't see the point of buying a camera with them.

Btw, quite nice affects can be had from long exposure shots of waterfalls etc... ie milky water.

Hi, tigerburnie

There have been some unfortunate changes to the forum of late and the present set-up isn't as user friendly as it used to be. However, and to answer your question, click on the rather obscure icon on the far right of the toolbar, from here you will be able to open your picture file from your pc. Choose the picture you want to post and open it.......this should upload it to your message box.

Nice shots, yarrow.......would I be right in guessing that you took night shot in Edinburgh using a very slow shutter speed, with your camera on a tripod?

Must have been a glitch  the icon on the upper left was of a proper camera instead of a half hidden 'E'.....alas, as you were!

There seems to have been an improvement in uploading pics......this is just a random shot to try it out.

What was the winning name for the sweet pea competition

Posted: 27/05/2016 at 08:47

My name is on Eagle's waiting list for a sweet pea to be named after me....so look out for a red one (preferably) named 'David K'.

Good luck to all who entered the above competition.
