how can I stop my apple stalks dropping off?

Posted: 06/05/2014 at 10:51

Marion - if your apple tree is as laden as you suggest, it is perfectly normal for the tree to shed the surplus it cannot support.

This is particularly noticeable next month, when fruit trees have what is known as the 'June drop'......it alarms people sometimes when the trees seem to be shedding all its fruit.

Some dwarf phlox would look quite nice in that, Lily.

Onion sets

Certainly not too late to plant onion sets, in fact it may be worth bearing in mind that the biggest single cause of onions failing by bolting (going to seed) is planting them in cold soil.

It's an azalea, Lily.

Regarding the hot climate question…. didn't I read somewhere that they are native to Sicily?

True...discovered by a Sicilian monk, but the average temperatures are similar to here in the UK.

Tree for small front garden?

Not sure if it appeals, but it does meet your height requirements.....how about a Kilmarnock Willow?

Just showed my OH that pic David, I think he is a tad envious 

 

Obviously a man of taste, OL.

Glad there has been messages of support for Rachel here.....she is truly a lovely lady who  does know her stuff.

A little while ago I posted here praising Stafford Hospital's care of my sister in her final days.......in view of recent media coverage of poor/horrific care of patients in care homes I would just like to relate my sister's care in her care home.

In her care home she was cared for extremely well and was happy and contented at all times. Two of her carers attended her funeral and were in tears along with close relatives.

I suppose I just wanted to say that whilst not being newsworthy, there is a lot of very good people out there.

But David, wasn't it you who enlarged the bird and re-posted it?

I asked for approval for taking the liberty of changing someone else's photo, in the absence of that approval I thought it appropriate to remove it.

Btw, I didn't enlarge it.
