Underplanting a stepover apple tree

I agree with Chicky - leave space where the rootball is as with all planting of fruit trees, but some spring bulbs further along the line of the branches should be fine

This may be of help

Don't want to be a pessimist ... but I don't think a climbing rose will ever be self-supporting enough to form an arch without support ... however, you may prove me wrong

BL that's lovely family news

Hosta - love your view - photos are gorgeous - hope you both have a lovely holiday.

I've just been out to thaw out the birdbath and top up the feeders - a Snow Bunting crocus is up and blooming   but no sign of the snowdrops ............ yet

Good morning all  Glad you got some sleep Hosta 

Sad about Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds - awful when a mother has to bury her child - no wonder her heart was broken. I know that some friends here have had to endure such heartbreak  and this may touch raw nerves ....  ((hugs)) to them.

The fog lifted and we had a spell of bright sunshine but the sun has gone again now and it's turned very cold again and looks as if the fog will return before long. A large part of the A140 between here and Ipswich hadn't been dialled and can be nasty when idiots get impatient in foggy weather - particularly when other idiots don't put their headlights on   It was so thick here earlier gthats I switched front and rear fog lights on just to drive down into the village, but there were of course silver coloured cars with no lights on at all trying to feel their way about

Look like long tailed tits to me too   Lollipop birds   glad your friend is ok Hosta - I love the NHS too  - wish the tax dodgers would cough up their fair share of the funding

Glad the keys turned up BL - put the spare set somewhere safe and remember where that is   Hope you're feeling better soon.

We've postponed our trip to see Wonky ...  the beautiful blue sky and sunshine that was here a couple of hours ago has been replaced by thick freezing fog ... son is picking a friend up from Gatwick and says the fog has been really nasty.  We'll visit Wonky another day
