A couple of questions for Uni

Posted: 04/10/2014 at 13:19

Joe, I wondered whether there was a confusion between square metres and metres squared, but in the end I didn't have the energy to formulate a query about it , so just went with the question as asked.

Sorry you're poorly Matty - do you get headaches when weather fronts come over giving a big change in air pressure - I don't often get headaches but I know that some people seem to notice a connection.  Hope it's soon better.

Rain seems to have petered out for now - but the skies look ominous.  As the weather's definitely on the turn I've picked off all the unripe figs - over 20 of them - it's a shame but they're not going to ripen now

Autumn raspberries - will they need staking?

I'm sure you can find him something else to do - it doesn't do to let them have time on their hands

Mine's just announced that he's got next week booked off work (to work in the studio) - he didn't tell me earlier in case I started making a list

Autumn raspberries - will they need staking?

I cut them back to knee high when they stop fruiting, then down to ground level in February.  I don't stake mine, but I do sort of loop strings/wire around them to hold them against the fence, just to stop them flopping and waving about in the wind.  They don't need the more formal post and wire set up like summer ones do.

Cat food and compost delivered   Didn't see any Dark Beauties on my travels (well not that sort anyway) but they had some gorgeous Toad Lilies at West Acre the other week - maybe Nut can pop over and grab you one. 

If anyone's in Norfolk and needs a tree or two I'd pop into Notcutts in Norwich if I were you - several Malus Golden Hornets and other crab apples, well grown about 7ft tall, various fruit trees, including Egremont Russet and Doyenne du Comice and various ornamentals including Cercis canadensis - all Half Price!!! in the Bargain Section at the back.

Lily, I'd recommend some of Pdoc's Patent Cure-all , a hot bath and a sit down on the sofa in front of a good film.

Hope it works ((hugs))
