The search facility is a little idiosyncratic, but it does work.  At the top of the page you'll see a box which says Search this site.  If you click on the magnifying glass to the right of it, it will bring up another Search box where you can type the subject you want to search for.

But don't worry about asking questions that have been asked before - we don't mind answering and if we remember there's been a thread about it we can post a link for you - if we can find it

Temperature here didn't get above 15.6C here today , and although the wind has dropped a bit the rain has changed from a fine drizzle to the proper stuff.  

A little while ago I seriously felt like having a fire in the sitting room - but I'm sitting on the sofa with a fleece over my knees while some jacket potatoes and home made pasties cook for supper.

Google 'gooseberry mildew images' and see if the pictures look like your gooseberries. 

If so, the information is here http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=739 

What type of apple tree is this?

Posted: 10/07/2014 at 13:49

Hi Saltlick 

If you grew this appletree from pip from an apple you had then it will be a totally new variety, having some of it's genetic material from the tree the apple grew on, and some from whichever apple tree or trees' blossom it was pollinated with.

Do you know what type of apple it was you got the pip from?
