major pruning of plum tree - advice needed

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 18:02

It's entirely up to you of course, but I wouldn't risk it - especially in a season like this, where autumn is coming early and the incidence of fungal and bacterial infections etc is high. 

Can I use Tomorite to feed my lawn?

Tomorite contain the nutrients that will promote flowering and fruiting which is not what you want your lawn to do.

For a lawn with a problem I would use a proprietary autumn lawn feed.

Could it be down to the prevailing wind direction?

Hi Miranda

There is a big upgrade being planned for the site - somewhen   Until then we struggle on and grin and bear it - we gardeners are good at that

Crown Prince squash???

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 09:20

Hi Melspade 

I love Crown Prince squashes, and usually buy several from the local farm shop to store in the garage and use over the winter.   If this contains only half the genetic material of a Crown Prince there's a chance that it's going to produce something useful, and it was far too interesting not to allow the seedling to grow and flourish. 

HELLO FORKERS!

I used to keep a little flock of Southdown ewes - they're so amenable they'd happily eat the lawn and not wander off - but I don't have them any more 

It's my birthday

Insulting dove!  I've gone off those tiny donuts anyway.   Focused on ESP large cream ones from my local pasty shop. 

Well, perhaps you could get a discount for a bulk buy and feed this lot while I'm out today
