Hello folks ... I'm back home ... a lovely day with Wonky and a successful shopping trip completed    ... Wonky also managed to organise herself a new phone as her other one had been run over by the tractor!!!!!!!!!  It still works but the screen is so badly cracked that texting is 'difficult'


However I've not walked so far since I broke my foot, so tonight I'll put my feet up and we'll have a takeaway delivered

Fruit Preserving Books

Posted: 12/08/2017 at 09:23

My two 'go to' preserving books are 


'Home Preservation of Fruit and Vegetables' ... an old book published by HMSO for the former Ministry of Agriculture but available here https://www.abebooks.co.uk/book-search/title/home-preservation-of-fruit-and-vegetables/ 


and the River Cottage 'Preserves' handbook.

A new way of taking cuttings

Posted: 12/08/2017 at 09:17

I've never had a problem with the types of cuttings mentioned ... most of them produce roots really easily in a jamjar of water on my kitchen windowsill.  I see no need to complicate things

Hello Joey ... can you post some photos please and tell us more about your tree, where it is planted, how long it has been there and the conditions.


To post a photo start with the camera icon and follow the instructions ... if the photos don't show try reducing the size ... that usually works.


I'm going out but there are plenty of people around to help ........... good luck
