Hi Gemma 

Can you tell us about your tree, where you're growing it and how?  Maybe post a picture or two.

To post a pic on here you click on the little green tree icon on the toolbar at the top of where you type your post, and follow the instructions.

Good morning all   The weather gods are filling the water butts   That's great as long as they've finished filling them by tomorrow - the Under Gardener has two raised beds to assemble!!!

Welcome to the newbies   I'm the one who's 26 'cos I'm counting backwards   

Don't worry about trying to keep up - sometimes it's possible and sometimes it's not - just join in - you don't have to comment on everything that's gone on, although you can if you want to ( if you can remember it after you've read it 

We're off to the theatre this evening to see  which is being performed as part of the Norfolk & Norwich Festival - very excited   Hope I stay awake
