Clari - I have a windowsill with two trays of pots full of sweet pea seeds -  due to a momentary lack in concentration I know one of the pots has no seeds in it   but I don't know which one

It's to do with the perception of what is important ......... when I was a student I applied for an evening checkout post at a local small supermarket ... the owner said I was over qualified and gave me the shift manager post ... tasks included cleaning and buffing the floor.  As she said, keeping the floor clean and safe for her staff and customers was one of the most important jobs.

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.

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

Posted: 16/03/2017 at 06:35

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
