Well, to follow on from my last post ... they were absent for for four nights then turned up and ate a little, but last night they licked the plate clean as they used to. 

Staking dwarf fruit trees

You'll see from this link that the RHS agrees with Bob that small trees rarely require staking. 

Unless the photo is deceiving, I'm a little concerned that there will not be a lot of room for the branches of the fruit trees, even if they're small ... the bed seems a little narrow to acommodate the width of a fruit tree's branches.  

I would be training espalier or fan trees against that fence.

Can you get a Bay Plant?

Hi Goranne ... can you show us some photos of your bays to give us some clues as to what might be wrong.

To upload photos start with the camera icon and follow instructions.  If photos don't upload try reducing the size.

Be aware that Jeyes Fluid, despite being incredibly toxic to them is very attractive to cats ... many have had agonising deaths as a result of lapping up a little spilt Jeyes Fluid.

Around here, if people put Hallowe'en decorations outside their homes it indicates that they're up for a visit from the local children but those of us who don't are left in peace.  

I've just been spending money   ... not only have I paid for half our next year's holiday, but I've booked a couple of really good seats for Glyndebourne Touring Opera's Mme Butterfly in March ... very excited
