i love oak leafed hydrangers in shady corners

only thing i could think of is same as above really, wait for a dry day and use a broom to break down the casts? not very practical on a large lawn. I know people used to use arsenic etc. probably best avoided! problem may be down to constant shade perhaps? do you cut and lay or pick up your cuttings?

if you could only have 2 pears...

hi all, this is my first thread

i'm  looking to choose two pears to be trained as verticle cordons either side of a 4m wide window  at the gable end of our bungalow. It'll be sw facing, and although there is a 12' hedge 25 meters away and a couple of lower hedges closer we are still a little exposed as there are fields for as far as you can see the other side of the hedges. we're located on the hampshire surrey borders so reasonably mild.

I'm keen to choose fruit trees that are either not available/hard to find or have some historic value, as well as obviously being good to eat, fresh or cooked! . I already have a conferance which may effect the decision re pollinating partners

So..... what would you choose?



Talkback: Rabbits and myxomatosis

Couldn't agree more, a horrible way to go. it tends to come in waves through areas, leaving a few resistant rabbits who increase in number till it returns and kills them off again. May not be very palatable but i put them out of there misery if i can get to them, i don't have the heart to leave them to die so slowly.
