Mystery garden tree- ID help

Posted: 14/10/2015 at 16:56

Check amongst all that grass and stuff - that has every sign of a fruit tree that has been overtaken by growth from below the graft.  The likelihood is that the graft variety is a poor fruit-producer or needs a pollinator from a group that's not available.

Lupins

I think I'd keep them in pots in a cool greenhouse - stand the pots on trays of gravel - little lupin plants are the slugs and snails favourite food.

Murky water in Pond

Newly hatched tadpoles eat algae - as they develop they become omniverous eating plant matter/algae and daphnia and other small invertebrates.  You can buy daphnia from most aquatic centres and pet shops, but the pond water you threw away probably had plenty in it.

Will you be able to keep the pond from freezing over winter?

Murky water in Pond

What are your tadpoles feeding on?  They usually feed on decaying matter and daphnia (water fleas) and other tiny creatures in the water.  If you're putting fresh water in the pond where are they going to get their nourishment from?

I'm afraid that I quite enjoy annoying them.  Last time I told them that they'd dialled the home of a Police Officer and the call would be traced.  They swore at me.

The time before I pretended to be a batty little old lady for about 15 minutes and said that I was doing everything that they were telling me, before bursting out laughing and telling them I'd been scamming them.  They swore at me then too
