How to save and move old fruit bushes

Posted: 11/04/2016 at 06:58

You can take cuttings, but currant bushes (especially older neglected ones) may be carrying a virus.

As Tetley says - look forward and plant new

Have you got yours yet?

Oooh Tetley - nylon knickers!!!  thank goodness we're no longer wearing undies made from the by-products of the petro-chemical industry.

An interesting run-down here of the decline of the UK textile industry http://www.bbc.co.uk/nationonfilm/topics/textiles/background_decline.shtml

Can't blame the EU for that one. 

 

On another note, it does seem strange to me that I keep coming across people who seem to be deciding on their vote on party lines  i.e. Vote out to kick the Tory government in the teeth

The thing is, the Labour Party have always supported Britain remaining in the EU. 

Non flowering Honeysuckle

I don't do a routine pruning - only cut back the long reaching tendrils when there's no where for them to go. 

At this time of year a good dose of Fish, Blood and Bone will help, and has been said plenty of water in the summer.

If the container is big enough and the compost is loam-based, have a look at the Clematis alpinas - many of them are happy on north facing walls.

Chameleon tulips!

Have you read Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach? All about the breeding and trading of rate tulip bulbs in Amsterdam in the 17th century and the fortunes won and lost - brilliant!

It's good that Gardeners can touch the ground isn't it? Straightening up without clutching the small of your back and groaning is even better

Are these Cosmos seedlings leggy?

Posted: 10/04/2016 at 20:07

Mine were in the mini greenhouse last night - we had a frost and there was ice on the lid this morning.  The cosmos were/are fine.

But I bring the tomatoes in overnight.
