Morning Chicky   We've got blue sky and white fluffies here now - and a fluffy dressing gown 

major pruning of plum tree - advice needed

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 07:02

The leaves have all been grown for some time and the fruit has swelled - from now on the tree will begin to shut down operations, fruit will fall and leaves begin to change colour because the sap isn't rising any more.  

Have you seen this rose?

..this is one of the Austin's that did not stand the test of time in this country...a few of his don't and they discontinue them.... probably suffered with too much black spot....or poor growth.... as sometimes happens, some of these do better in hot climates like Australia or California...as this one does, it seems...

I did wonder if that might be the case .... not much point in trying it here then - nothing Antipodean about this garden.  Never mind - it was a nice idea.

On a related topic .... there is a beautiful white aquilegia called Dove - i've seen it growing at Wisley and taken a note of the name.  You could have a garden full of Doves

I sowed some earlier - nothing yet - maybe in the spring 

It's my birthday

That cake's nearly all gone - we'll have to make another for tomorrow ........
