Raspberry plant Driscolls Maravilla Where to Buy?

Posted: 13/12/2015 at 22:51

The best tasting raspberry is said to be Glen Fyne.  It is widely available. Driscolls are based in California but they are releasing types to the UK market. I would only put three or four canes in a metre squared.

Beautiful, chicky. Does that border face the sun, or is it shaded by the woodland a lot.?

 My favourite is Jasmine.

Some clematis have a fragrance. Have a look at Taylors clematis list for details.

Talkback: How to prevent Christmas tree needle drop

Posted: 12/12/2015 at 10:58

I have bought Nordmann firs for the last few years. I have the bottom inch cut off the stem by the farmer with his chainsaw when I buy it. Then I soak it in a bucket of water for a few days before I bring it in. It goes in a stand with water in the base that gets the occasional top up. I keep it away from radiators. It usually lasts up to twelth night, when it comes down, with very little needle drop.

Christmas presents for Gardeners

The stems are 2 metres and the heads about 60cm across.  Final position is not decided yet.

 I must move that orange bucket. They catch the sun here. Even more so if I trim a buddleia and rose in the hedge line.
