G'day Pat and Hello to Aunty Rach and all those arriving since I first popped my nose above the duvet
OH and I need to get some photos and drawings done so we're heading for the North Norfolk coast this morning ... all is quiet weather wise here in the east.
Good morning all
Busy week ahead for Obelixx and Chicky and no doubt for some others too ... hope all goes according to plan
thoughts are with all those in the west and Ireland. Keep safe everyone ((hugs)).
Large established plants have large established roots ... but I wouldn't call that invasive.
Keep safe everyone. Having been through the worst of the '87 storm, I'll be thinking of you all.
There once was a storm called Ophelia
Which totally stripped my abelia
Of leaves and of flowers in my bucolic bowers
And scattered them o'er the phacelia.
To upload photos start with the camera icon. If that doesn't work try reducing the size of your photo ... that usually works
I use the lawn rake attachment first and then the 'scarifier' ... works fine that way round for us.
Good luck Mary
I remember the Storm of '87 ... our area was bang in the middle of it ... lots of damagem roads blockedt for several days and no power or phone for nearly two weeks ... lost a few shrubs but our home and family were ok, and that was the important thing.
Foxes eat slugs and worms as well as rabbits and rats etc ... just the sort of creature you'd find under the hessian around a pond ... I would try to discourage them ... the family should naturally be breaking up now and moving on to establish their own territories. Feeding them will stop this natural event occurring and can cause problems such as over-population and consequent disease.
Boskoop Glory is also frequently grown outside in the UK and also has pips. The leaves also have very good autumn colour.
I wouldn't be worrying about the variety ... I'd just make the wine ... the sweetness and therefore the amount of additional sugar needed varies from season to season as well as variety.
