potatoes for the winter

Posted: 02/09/2012 at 16:59

hate to tell you its not the time to do it really.I have bunged in some old potatoes and got a poor result in autumn.I don't know if there is a variety for winter.but if its your first attempt wait  awhile till  spring but you need a potato expert.I did some in a bag this year and that too was a poor result .

sometimes they are new shoots but if they have straggle growth and 6 leaves they might be suckers if s0 cut out.climbers give a trim and cut back long over shoot branches but don't prune to hard as I did with Albertine as I had to wait ages to get it back to flowering.

crab apples come in many varieties .the wild ones you pick out in the wild are small and best for jelly.You can get some that are different shades of green and red which gives the jelly a lovely colour.I have a tree which was a cox's until it was damaged and then it reverted to being a crab.
