Visit to the Old Vicarage Gardens, East Ruston, Norfolk. 19/07/14

Posted: 23/06/2014 at 13:13

Panda and I have been planning a trip to visit the Old Vicarage Gardens at East Ruston in Norfolk - we thought that a Saturday would be good then any of those who still have to attend salt mines during the week could come along too!  

How does Saturday 19th July sound to people?   I've been before - as I recall parking is pretty good and OH recalls very good tea and cake   

There's also some chickens and animals so something for smaller people to look at if anyone brings an apprentice gardener along

We  thought that some of us might go for a pub meal locally afterwards so if anyone's interested in that idea let us know.  

Help my hedge is dying

That's about what we've got (with the trellis on top) and no one has objected. 

Of course, there is now legislation about high hedges too http://rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=408 

 

When do I harvest Scarlet curly kale

Posted: 23/06/2014 at 12:52

I've not grown Scarlet Kale, but I have grown ordinary Curly Kale and I've never harvested it until the cold weather strikes us - I find it's a good crop that stands the bad weather when other veg are scarce.  

Have you staked it?  I've always tied mine to a stout cane to prevent wind damage in the  winter.

That's so sad - there's nothing more worthwhile in my opinion - and bdooly tough work too and needs people with a brain, tenacity and common sense.  My daughter works for Mencap - she and the majority of her colleagues are graduates.

Hi LinLin 

Can you post us a picture of the trees please?  

To post a pic on here you click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and then you'll get instructions on uploading photos from a pc.

 I'm afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet!
