Help to value fruit trees

Posted: 27/06/2014 at 20:55

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?

I have a couple of leeks that are going to flower. The bees love them. They are in the middle of the broad bean patch, but  so what.

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.

Bit of drizzle here but it's stopped now.

My next door neighbour in the big house that own the wood was walking past last night. He is colour blind and can only see blue. He is 95, he had a cataract operation recently and he says that now he has better colour vision than when he was young.

 I gave him a couple of spare Salvia patens. Now he just has to get them past his wife.

There are very few true blues in the garden. He sees cichorium as a pale blue though I see it as purply blue. I think most blues have some purple in. My blue poppy this year was violet
