My avocado plant's stem is turning brown!

I don't know why it's going brown from the tip - it may be too cold or too wet - they don't need much water in the winter - certainly not every day.   When was it last repotted and what in?

All may not be lost - I find that the best avocado plants develop from ones that are pruned hard back to about 3 leaves from the base and then they branch out and form an elegant bush shape.

Good morning all   Nippy out there this morning -2.7C  - my first coffee of the day was accompanied by the sound of our neighbour scraping a windscreen.  So glad I don't have to do that today - keep safe and warm everyone who has to journey out to the saltmine - TGIF

Lovely team you have there Fritillary

I was married the month before my 19th birthday - son born 2 years later.  That marriage wasn't my best decision but it did last 24 years and I have two lovely children so it was worth it

A good visit to the Aged Ps.  Ma should have her new dentures next week. 

After the visit I went down to the harbour and bought some fish fresh from the boat - landed yesterday evening - 8 good sized codling fillets for £10 - bargain

And I saw some great wildlife too - have a look at the bird sightings thread

I know I said I'd be sure to see partridges on my way to see the Aged Ps today, but I didn't

BUT

on the way home there was a Common Buzzard perched on top of an old elder bush right at the side of the road - such a clear view - I could see all the wonderfully marked breast feathers - I was following a tractor so going slowly and the buzzard didn't seem at all perturbed by the traffic.

AND

after visiting my Aged Ps I sat in the car at the harbour mouth for a while, watching the Herring gulls, Black-headed gulls and Turnstones when suddenly I saw a seal breaking the surface of the water, looking about him and heading on out to sea.

Not a bad day's Nature-watching
