HELLO FORKERS!

I can get the fork in the clay next door now, although its still pretty dry. Need more rain up here. I planted some salvias but broke peach cobbler. I made three cuttings, so fingers crossed. I like hot lips, currently red and white.
Amistad is going to be huge.

Cosmos are starting to flower now, and the overwintered dahlias.

I'm glad you like the cosmos,Mrs Garden, I find they are good fillers while you wait for perennials to fill out.

Help to value fruit trees

You wouldn't be able to get trees of that size. It will take several years for new trees to get to that size. Maybe you should work out a value of say 5 years crop of plums that you won't have, assuming you know what weight of plums you get off each year.

Anyone good with onions?

Fruit from pips

There are lots of apples growing in hedgerow or at the side of busy roads, where apple cores have been thrown. They will not be identical to the parent apple. They may take many  years to flower and fruit.  Oranges need heat to survive the winter. Apples are grafted on to rootstocks to control the size of the tree.

Aphids pierce the fruit and it exudes a resin.
