Fruit Trees from seed (of the more exotic form)

Posted: 23/08/2016 at 16:13

You can grow all sorts of citrus as well as avocados from supermarket saved seed, but you're unlikely to get fruit on them anywhere in the UK.

You could paint them with yoghurt to encourage lichens and mosses to grow on them

Buddleja is only invasive if you don't weed your garden. 

When you know you've bought the wrong one

Gave the almost brand new all singing all dancing Dyson to Wonky 'cos I was fed up with it and her Lovely Hub liked the tech look of the Dyson.  

We bought an ordinary Panasonic like we used to have to replace the Dyson and I love it.

A few months later and Wonky bought a Henry to replace the Dyson ... don't know who she gave the Dyson to.

31.9C in the shade in my back garden ...

If you want it really thick I'd cut the whole thing down to about 18" high, and then it'll bush out from the bottom as it grows ... but you'll have to forgo the privacy for a few years ... your choice. 

Can anyone tell me what this is please, and is it ok to eat?

Looks like Pokeweed to me too.  Pretty sure the leaves are similar to the pokeweed leaves I've seen at East Ruston and elsewhere.

We've had a lot of strong sunlight ... are the flowers just getting too hot up there near the roof of your greenhouse?

Pat   that was my thought - get the new yarn before I start the sleeves so and then a slight difference wouldn't show - but hopefully it's not going to come to that now that I've checked the measurements.  I do a similar 'blending' if I have to ... it works well doesn't it 

Morning the rest of you now that you've appeared ... have a good day folks ... getting out there ...

Change of plan - I was looking at the measurements for the long sleeves, not the 3/4 length   Think I'm going to be ok.  Don't really want to go into the city on a lovely day like today ... shall finish my coffee, take my 'going into the city clothes' off and put something slightly scruffier on ... and get outside
