Trees and their relationships

Posted: 05/01/2015 at 08:22

I receive a regular newsletter from a fungi foray site - this month's has fascinating information about symbiotic relationships between trees and fungi and microrhyzal organisms which I thought many gardeners would find interesting. 

Just click on the link and scroll down a bit to the paragraph about Radio 4's Gardener's Question Time

Hope the working week goes well Chicky    (so glad I don't have to do that any more, says she, whispering)

Good morning all

We had a frost earlier -2C in the back garden, but it's all thawed now and the temp is rising.  Apparently some of you up north are going to get some storms later in the week, so batten those hatches down in plenty of time.

Our Lovely Builder is still poorly so won't be here until Wednesday, but the electrician is coming to fit an extractor fan in the bathroom, so a degree of chaos is expected here today!

.... children who haven't been taught to say 'Please' and 'Thank you'

And even worse, adults who have been taught, but just don't bother, 'because that's just the way I am'

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

We do it in September which I think is what is advised. 

I'd leave well alone now - they're probably prospecting for nest sites, but could also be using it as a shelter/roost in the cold weather.
