Hello Forkers ... July Edition

Glad Chicklet has touched down safely ... Don't envy you your Heathrow relay 


The 'lovely early morning' we had is now very wet ... But the weather lady says it'll be gone in a couple of hours. Hope so ... Latitude starts today ... Son has been setting up there for the past few days and he'll be doing the sound for some of the acts. Good weather would be helpful

Ants

Posted: 14/07/2017 at 06:33

Blossom on an apple tree at this time of year is not good news ... It indicates a plant under extreme stress.


It sounds to me as if that tree has been so thirsty it thinks it is dying and it is desperately trying to reproduce itself before that happens.


The fact that ants have been nesting in the pot indicates that the compost was much too dry - ants don't choose damp regularly watered pots to nest in. 


Aphids may cause damage but they won't kill a healthy tree  ... drought will

Dead conifers?

Our commiserations katherine joyce ... we need a bit more information if we're going to try to help.


Tell us more about the tree, what sort it is, where it is, what its symptoms are and a photo would be really helpful 


Moving a silver birch

I agree .... if you do't want that that tree there get rid of it.


If you want a bonsai-style birch in a pot start with something smaller.


I don't think  you can do it with that tree.
