Pruning

Posted: 22/01/2015 at 12:02

I would leave it until March.

You should prune it after flowering, removing very old wood to the base but otherwise just prune to keep it to the required size. Cut back lightly in spring.

I know the problem has been sorted but if you still need adblockers then I have just googled 'Apple ipad free adblocker' and there appears to be quite a few adblocker apps.

With the one below, you do not need to download anything.

Let me know if it is of any use please.

The Peace Garden’s popular nickname is ‘Sheffield’s Beach’ . According to the Sheffield council.

LIFE IN SHEFFIELD CITY CENTRE’S IS GOING TO BE A BEACH THIS SUMMER.

Cleethorpes is easily the closest but i think Scarborough/ Brid  and Filey are better. Try Robin Hoods Bay. My preference goes to the last two.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

STORE SEEDS PROPERLY 
Keeping seeds dry during storage is most important. Moisture causes seeds to rot. See to it that moisture from the air or any other sources does not get into the seeds. A simple, inexpensive but efficient storage container can be made out of a glass jar with an airtight lid. Get a clean jar. Make sure it is dry. As a precaution against moisture, put a layer of powdered charcoal (dessicant) on the bottom of the jar. One-half inch thickness is sufficient. If silica gel or calcium chloride is available, these should be substituted for the charcoal. Place the seeds in an envelope so they do not get in contact with the charcoal; place in a jar and cover tightly. Low temperature prolongs the life of the seeds. With this method of storage, seeds can be kept without significant germination loss.
