Dovefromabove I checked the web-site, says its not currently available, but I'm sure it will be in the fall.....



I think you've mis-read the site - the service that isn't available is  the 'Buy the tree you see' option - you can still buy a tree that Barcham staff will select for you.

I think that fitting dentures immediately after extraction is quite normal nowadays.

Harrumph!  I'd just been out to select some pots for the bearded iris rhizomes Wonky gave me, and was getting ready to pot them up and ............. the heavens have opened

Drooping leaves on almond plant

Hi John

Did you grow this from seed?

Very few plants need watering every day, especially if they're in the humid atmosphere of a bathroom.  Almonds grow naturally in areas with free-draining soil so I suggest that you cut right back on watering - only water when the soil beneath the surface is dry.  It would probably be much happier in a sheltered spot outside.

Did the plants need watering?

But make a toilet area for the dog (bark chippings?)   and train her to only go there, otherwise you will never have a green lawn.
