Gardenning Granny, neighbours made it quite clear that NOTHING can touch HIS fence.


I have all 3 lots (30 plants) of Pyracantha now and a Quince tree and Quince bush.

Cant do anything till his fence goes up, then its full steam ahead

Got some wooden stakes too, I'm going to put wire connecting each stake so that the plants can grow against them, Unfortunately due to not being rich, I might have to use some old Barbed wire I found in my shed

Hedge ?

Orange glow

Only reason I want them in the greenhouse is next door will destroy then when they have the fence done, I'm 2-3ft lower than they are so the fencers have to work from my side.

The orange are the first to arrive, they are labelled orange so hopefully they will darken. They range from 1-2ft tall. They're going in the greenhouse tomorrow whe I'm waiting for next doors fence to be erected. Better be soon

My orange Pyracanthas arrived today, to say I got 10 plants for less than ??13.50 delivered is great value. My questions are 1. Will the yellow berries darken to orange as they look more yellow than orange 2. I have 30 plants, 10 of each colour. They are all going to be planted in 1 row. Am I best planting all the colours in a mix or keep red with red and so forth? 3. Do I need to prune them to get them big and bushy, or just plant and forget for 12 months. Thanks in advance

You could use a VERY weak brick acid, and when I say weak I mean 100 parts water to it.
