Good morning Scroggin and BLizzie - missed you there, must've snuck in whilst I was making another coffee   Anyone else want one? 

Please can anyone identify this plant for me?

Morning Lily 

The fig stays outside - it's in a big terracotta pot in the southeast corner of the terrace - it's a Brown Turkey and they're pretty tough - I wouldn't normally be fleecing it except in really hard frosts, but the little fruit have started to swell early this year because of the mild winter, so I'm just being ultra cautious.

I think I'd pot them up individually in specialist citrus compost.

When to harvest

Posted: 23/03/2014 at 07:21

If you wait until all the foliage has died down the bulbs can begin to split which causes storage difficulties - the knack is to get the timing right between the outer leaves dying down and the centre ones remaining green. 

Cutting down a large yew tree

Just look at the yew wood bowls you can find on google  https://www.google.com/search?q=yew+wood+bowl&rlz=1C1SVEE_enGB425GB425&espv=210&es_sm=122&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=QoouU4-iGYWqhAeXsIHIDQ&ved=0CCgQsAQ&biw=1093&bih=515 

As Bamboogle says, it would be a lovely thing to have in your home to remind you of an ancient tree.

Mike, do you remember 'Fred Loaves, Bill Sowerbutts and Professor Alan Gemmell of Keele University'? - this intro to Gardeners' Question Time is hard-wired into my memory, as is Alastair Cooke's Letter from America.  I think children are short-changed by 24 hour children's t.v. because having nothing better to do than listen to what your parents were listening to, was unintentionally very educational!

Absolutely - as someone who gained my degrees as a mature student, for many years I firmly maintained that I'd received my education from Radio 4.
