Plum Fruit Moth?

Posted: 25/09/2013 at 08:55

I have no fruit in the top of the tree. There was plenty of blossom. I am putting this down to wood pigeon damage.

Misty here. Can't see a lot. I had a note pushed through the door last night, asking if I had seen anything as a neighbour has been burgled in the last few days. But it doesn't say which one. So do I report the free paper boy, or the  postman who did his round in strict numerical order,even though we're on a main road , with even numbers one side and odd the other.or the man creeping out to go back to his wife at 3in the morning.?

Stacey, that deserves a Tate prize. Much more than those that do win. How anyone can think a pile of bricks is Art is beyond me. Too much money and a bad dose of emperor's new clothes syndrome.

I've got a couple in the bean patch. I'm going to cut them down to 6 inches and put 3 to a 6 inch pot ans overwinter in the greenhouse.

In hot countries, amaryllis are evergreen. My mum keeps hers in a conservatory, waters and feeds (tomato or comfrey fertiliser) all year round, and has flowers on one or the other all the time. Two of mine that flowered in spring sent up another flower spike in August, and one currently has a big seed pod, presumably pollinated by being outside.
