Weed killing before turfing

Use a proprietory weedkiller witht the active ingredient glyphosate - use according to instructions on the pack.

Using salt will contaminate your soil and nothing except asparagus will grow.

Poorly Pear Tree

My Concorde pear has been planted 3 years now and is flowering for the first time - pears are slow to get gowing - there's an old saying, You plant pears for your heirs. 

Modern grafting has meant that this saying isn't quite as relevant as it was, but patience is still needed.

I'm sure yours is fine.

Hope everyone else's fleece, newspapers etc have done their jobs.

Coffee anyone?
