Hi M-K-    we took over a very neglected garden and there was loads of wildlife - including an active population of vine weevils among shrubs and flower beds.


We applied nematodes in spring and again in autumn as described in the link below four years ago and have found very little evidence of vine weevils since  (although the rest of the wildlife has increased - if the VW increase again I'll repeat.

Liri - have a good trip and enjoy your wonderful isolation

Morning Chicky   It is a glorious morning isn't it   The weather man is just saying that it's going to cloud over and turn to drizzle except in the East and the north ...

Pruning Tip bearing (and Partial...) trees in the same way as spur bearing

In the absence of any available evidence all we have is our brains - mine tells me that treating tip bearing trees the same as spur bearing doesn't make sense 


I'd use my brain.

Good luck with that MK. 


Have you tried nematodes on your vine weevils. When wd came here there were a lot in part of the garden. We applied two lots of nematodes and that really seems to have greatly reduced their numbers. Fingers crossed!


now it's time for bed - sweet dreams folks

Topbird - ground elder makes a very good colcannon. Haven't had it for a while - this is my first garden without it   Now is the time to pick Alexander's for eating.

Love the Fox & Goose BL. Many memorable meals there.  Many moons ago it had a Michelin star - I know those people are no longer there but it still has a really good reputation.  Glad you enjoyed it.
