You need patience - cacti are very slow growing.  Look for a Cactus enthusiasts' club in your area - this way you will learn lots of information about your plant.

HELLO FORKERS!

Plum tree shouldn't really have grass growing up to trunk - should be a bare circle at least 1m in diameter, so that you can mulch/fertilise/water without competition from the grass   Bet your tree will be happier if you do that

Panda - that Corylus will look gorgeous

Clari - that is all soooooooooo exciting    Doing all that stuff should get you some more funding, shouldn't it?

Chicky and Woody - you've all been having fun too

The Under Gardener  has been helping with the two-handed stuff and the last of the tomatoes have been picked and the plants binned, the courgette plants have been uprooted and added to the compost heap, and some round-seeded peas have been sown to overwinter and provide an early crop next year. Also lots of tidying, deadheading, watering and staking has been done, and Hefty's Mansion has been cleaned out and re-positioned in a more sheltered spot in the Little Wilderness.

It's been a lovely day

I don't know, but from what I've read I believe that sensible bee-keepers are perhaps more open-minded than they used to be, given the problems facing traditional beekeeping recently.  This link looks interesting http://www.bee-friendly.co.uk/

Google for your local beekeeping association - they'll run classes for beginners and they usually provide a mentor too

Aerating the lawn - fab old tool...

I was once given a similar contraption, it was green and had a footplate above the horizontal bar at the bottom - I was told you had to stand on it to get the prongs into the ground - shame I wasn't as heavy then as I am now  - it was jolly hard work - I didn't get custody of it - I wonder what the ex did with it  he certainly doesn't tend his lawn with it
