Time to go Chrlie Dimmock then Dove!, or buy some of the ones you pull over your head, peacocks do some good ones

Going CD would just be asking for more accidents and buying more would involve a shopping trip - OH is more than happy to help

Rosemummy - a foot high sounds fine - outward pointing bud and all that

Follow on the beans

Broad beans  Aquadulce Claudia is a good variety for autumn sowing

Are these damsons or sloes please?

Posted: 16/09/2014 at 06:52

Sloes are produced very close to the branch, whereas buckthorn berries are on a stem.  Sloes are usually larger and more oval than buckthorn berries.  Sloes have a whitish bloom on the skin like blue/purple plums, whereas buckthorn berries are reddish-black and glossy.  I could not possibly confuse the two. However, I've been gathering hedgerow fruits for many many years.

It goes without saying that if you don't know what you're doing seek on the spot help from someone who does or leave well alone.


Pear Tree Diseased

Perhaps you're leaving them on the tree for too long - pears don't ripen on the tree - they need to be picked while they are still quite firm, and then allowed to ripen.

We had a similar question a while back
