Just checking - what sort of compost is your cherry tree in? It really needs John Innes No 3 loam-based compost ... and it does get plenty of water doesn't it?

... Been burning in firepit and downsizing in a ruthless fashion ready for the house move! Making the most of the time off I have as starting the new job on the 17th. Not got a date for move yet, could be September could be October or could be a surprise and be end of this month !  trying to be as prepared as possible but I envisage a Dove flying over to help carry things!  ...

Better get Papa Womble on standby to do a double shift just in case - OH and I are away for 10 days from mid Sept!!!
