Posted: 19/08/2014 at 19:59

Hello I'm back from a lovely day out with daughter - we went to Pin Mill (the setting for some of Arthur Ransome's children's novels) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pin_Mill and had a fantastic lobster salad lunch  and a walk along the foreshore and the wooded river bank alongside all the houseboats that are moored there.

 Pin Mill, including the Adnams' pub, the Butt and Oyster 

 

Any news from BL and DD or have they both been taken by white slave traders?

major pruning of plum tree - advice needed

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 18:02

It's entirely up to you of course, but I wouldn't risk it - especially in a season like this, where autumn is coming early and the incidence of fungal and bacterial infections etc is high. 

Can I use Tomorite to feed my lawn?

Tomorite contain the nutrients that will promote flowering and fruiting which is not what you want your lawn to do.

For a lawn with a problem I would use a proprietary autumn lawn feed.

Could it be down to the prevailing wind direction?

Crown Prince squash???

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 09:20

Hi Melspade 

I love Crown Prince squashes, and usually buy several from the local farm shop to store in the garage and use over the winter.   If this contains only half the genetic material of a Crown Prince there's a chance that it's going to produce something useful, and it was far too interesting not to allow the seedling to grow and flourish.
