Iris - to lift and move or allow seed pod to ripen?

I'd cut the seed pod off and get it out into some sun.

a supersoaker water pistol would do as well. Charlie the wargames forum is somewhere else.

What to plant

Posted: 04/09/2013 at 12:25

Blackcurrants or raspberries will both tolerate some shade. My biggest blackcurrant is now fairly shaded all the time from an apple, but I still got about 8 lb of blackcurrants off it this year.

 What fruit do you like.? No point planting gooseberries if you don't like them.

I love raspberries so much I am going to plant more.  You can have different varieties to extend the season from June to October.

It sounds ideal for pretty much any soft fruit. Or if it is backed by a fence, you could grow three fan trained friut trees on the fence and strawberries in front.

Or a row of different cordon apples.

Advice please.

how to freez onions

Sandra, if you have a dry cool place , onions will keep until well into new year. Just make sure they are dried off properly first.

Back to school. it gives me shivers. Instead of taking flowers for teacher, I used to take apples from my mum's James Grieve. (not for teacher, for us kids.).  40 odd years on, my friend in Australia says she still remembers those apples. It started with an English lesson, when we were told to bring  a piece of fruit in and then describe it.  Her dad used to have a greengrocers, but those apples were never the same....

She doesn't have an apple tree now, they grow lemons and oranges in Perth. Although I am allowed to take Teabags into Australia, they won't let fruit in, so the memory of the apples will  have to remain a memory.

I offered my sister some worcesters last night. She said she would have a few but her boys won't eat "tree apples", only supermarket apples, because they might have bugs in.
