Where can I sell an established Acer

Posted: 19/10/2015 at 12:13

The trouble with moving large trees is that if you dont get all the rootball, its likely to die. We tried to move a 5 ft tall acer from his mums, it looked ill for six months then died.

Apple choices...?

I like James Grieve. It doesnt go to mush like bramleys, but you can cook or eat it raw. It is a big apple. I will be picking mine tomorrow. It stores well.

A parcel ofbulbs came today. I bought a couple of already potted and growing amaryliis from lidl. I bought four new echeverias from Trebah, and an autumn flowering anemone from Heligan. I bought nothing at Rosemoor, I was very good. When I've finished all the washing, i start planting.

We had pachelbel canon in d to walk in, and the prince of denmarks trumpet voluntary to walk out. Then he said that actually we should have had Morecambe and Wise Bring me sunshine to walk out to.

Overwintering semi-tropicals

I would keep all of those frost free under cover for the winter. I think if you plant out now, you will probably lose the lot. If you plant out next spring, they have time to establish.

DD, I hope your OH is well. Having done the eight miles in eight minutes in the back of an ambulance with my other half, to bypass a and e and go straight into cardiac intensive care, I know how worrying it is. He was fine after the clotbuster. I lost 7 lb in 7 days. It didnt help when he was moved out of intensive care onto an ordinary ward, and the nurses  forgot to phone me. I walked in to find his bed empty and his name rubbed off the board. Fifteen years on and he is still fine with no further episodes.

Hostafan,  Moo.

No really I wont drop in as my new sister in law gave me a stinking cold as a wedding present. She insisted on hugging me, then told me how unwell she was.  We said no presents. Huh.

I'm currently trying to steam  it out. We will call in at Rosemoor, then head for home. We run my aussie friend back to the airport tomorrow.
