A Sticky or Notice Board thread.

That's what has been done before when something has been required to be easily visible for a while - we keep bumping the Help for Flooded Gardens threads up 

ID - Apple tree

Lots more information needed - this website might help you 

Also you'll need to wait a bit until the blossom is out fully so you can see the colour etc. 

Another avenue for you - the keepers of the National Fruit Collection at Brogdale have a Fruit ID service - details here

or you can keep your eyes peeled  for one of the several Apple Identification Days held at County and Horticultural Shows and Events throughout the autumn - good luck

Anyone planted out their sweet pea seedlings?

Mine were planted out at the weekend - they've been in an open cold-frame for weeks now, tough as old boots.

Hello folks  back from visiting Aged Ps - both fine, frail but happy - Ma talking bunkum but happy bunkum so can't complain.  I feel completely bushed - I suppose it was  a busy weekend and visiting APs always tires me  - OH had remains of yesterdays Kelftiko for supper and I've just had a black pudding scotch egg, some coleslaw and a gherkin - now I just want to doze 

But not before I've said Welcome Back Potty!!! 

Thompson & Morgan - issues!
