I order a load of well rotted farm yard manure from my local friendly farmer. He delivers it by the trailorload for 30quid. It takes me a couple of years to get through the pile. I also have four compost bins and builders sacks full of leaves rotting down.

Pick pears when they part easily when lifting the pear gently. Then ripen in the window sill, watching carefully. There is about 24 hours between perfectly ripe and starting to rot from the inside. I like conference while still crunchy, but williams have to be juicy.

Plant ID please
