Apples have to be pollinated by other apples - and they must be from the right group - if you have a look at the link I posted, there's a button to click to give you a list of suitable pollinators.

I think he's altered it - it's very short and didn't mention weedkillers or lawns this morning.

I've just done it. It seemed straightforward to me. I saw nothing about chemicals.

No flowers at all over last 3 years. It has healthy and vigorous growth which lends me to believe i have cut it back too much. Its a standalone fruit tree....the grower told me it would self pollinate and it did for a couple of years....prob yr 3 and 4 but not since....!

See original post

 I'm afraid the grower told porkies  Katy is self-sterile

....Trying to explain the vagaries of the English language - I wish you well DD

See original post

 I find it hard to use 'got' ...... blame Ma - she said it was an ugly word - or that's what Sister Whatsit told her as she rapped Ma's knuckles with a ruler 

But if you're teaching 'English as she is spoke' then somehow you have to explain it.  (I nearly said 'somehow you've got to explain it).

Well, the bright sunshine has disappeared and been replaced by drizzle .... we will be making an expedition to B&Q shortly for OH's piece of wood ............. I may well be found in the gardening section ........... or will it be full of Christmas trees ???

...  Lant, a few people have questioned whether this forum is the right place for javison's questionnaire;  ... He'd be better targetting local councils, parks departments, National Trust and the like, rather than individuals.

Right, on with the day....what are you all up to?

See original post

 Maybe Wonky should get her boss to fill it in? 

Heavy drizzle here so nothing better to do than take OH to B&Q to get some wood ... perhaps I could sneak into the garden section

Has your tree produced plenty of blossom? If so it's unlikely to be a pruning problem. Is there a suitable pollination partner nearby? 

Soft Verge

Posted: 15/11/2016 at 08:46

I think that I'd try using timber posts, or large stones painted white as often seen in simulated circumstances. Alternatively perhaps plant it up with shrubs?

thinking logically - is it possible that the road needs to be widened and the verge narrowed in order to accommodate modern vehicles?
