Bay tree close to house...

Posted: 08/12/2013 at 16:46

my bay is near our back wall and has been there for years by being  kept clipped and we have had no trouble (touch wood).

Advice needed please

In  sheltered area I would try a bay tree but unless you grow it yourself from  a small cutting it could be costly.

I would wait until  spring and put it in slightly bigger pot but not too big and water and feed req in summer and make sure it does not dry out in winter too much.

nothing down this end in  the west. I visited Hunstanton  in the summer a lovely beach and I can see how Norfolk can flood so easily.

I have been  a volunteer at the riding for disabled for 25 years and enjoyed every minute ,they are giving me an award for this service but I have got such a lot out of helping and its often kept me sane when life got tough.so I am grateful to them.

parks and commons

Posted: 05/12/2013 at 20:47

there are a lot of parks and commons around here and what a joy it is to see them being enjoyed by all groups of people  in the community .Some years ago the parks where in poor shape and tired and few people used them and the playgrounds in a bad way and there was tired air to them. I have to say that common where I live did have  a lot of wildlife ,such as black headed gulls who visited in winter in numbers and also starlings along with bobbing pied wagtails and at first when the numbers people walking dogs increased and the parks in proved with playground s,the number of birds seem to decrease and I thought all was lost but now they seem to have adapted to the  surroundings and are  now back  .It is a joy to see people enjoying,, and especially children, these open space and we do need these breathing spaces for humans and wild life.

hedge cutting

to cut hedges now is the best time as it avoids the nesting period of birds ,I have done a bit of hedge clipping too but always more to do!
