When/if to prune fruit?

They don't usually need regular pruning as such, so no problem

When/if to prune fruit?

Posted: 07/09/2015 at 10:02

Dont prune cherries or plums now - they need to be done in midsummer.

What's doing this to my garden?!

My first thought was badgers, but I would have thought there would have been digging ... so maybe young foxes 'playing'

this is?

He'll soon be disappearing and finding himself a place to pupate over winter.  He'll emerge in the late spring looking like this

OH does similar Fidget - and he also always uses First Defence before going on public transport, or in crowds like theatre, city centre shopping etc.

Steve, in case Wonky doesn't see ... yes, cat abscess -  in exactly the same place - no new wound.  If you remember it was cleaned dressed and treated with antibiotics, then the abcess reformed and was treated again.  Now there's a large hard swelling again in exactly the same place.

Ah, I've read about Sugar Plum, it is a very similar colour to Miss Ruby but Miss R is slightly more pink whereas Sugar Plum is a bit redder.  SP was bred at Longstock whereas Miss R is from the USA.   The colour is fantastic - it's outside my sitting room window and I can see the flowers from here - it attracts lots of bees and butterflies.
