With cherries it depends on the rootstock.with dwarf rootstock, all of these should be fine at 5m from the house. What varieties do you have?

I ordered an extra stand for the greenhouse today, complete with 15 seed trays.

 Mainly because the benches are already full.

I wonder if I could get some high level shelves in?

Tea and biscuits anyone?.

As I said, I'm happy for a majority verdict. I think the title is what antagonises someone, but I agree, WUMS will post whenever and wherever they like.

I showed OH the chillis, Stacey, he thinks you photoshopped them.

It reminds me of when we used to sell a capsaicin cream called "Fiery Jack" (a rubbing cream for arthritis). We used to tell the men they had to wash their hands BEFORE they went to the toilet.......

I did wonder if its time to start a new thread for chat, and abandon the "forkers "title altogether. I think it has been spoilt .

We could move into a virtual log cabin for a fresh start.( The potting shed won't be big enough) 

Dove said to me that she would be OK with that. However I don't want to start one and have the divisions we had when the old morning and evening forkers threads were abandoned.

What does everyone else think?

Chillis cause the release of endorphins which act as a natural pain killer as well as  the "high"feeling. But they disagree with my insides somewhat violently, so I'll stick to  plain chocolate for my endorphins, Thanks.
