Growing pears in shade?

Posted: 27/08/2014 at 16:45

pears from your garden as apples will always taste better than supermarket.There is the scent,fresh taste and the joy of picking your own.As for growing in the shade ,I  have seen one today growing in the shade on golden valley with fruit , it needed pruning but edible fruit.

burn the leaves do not leave on ground or compost heap and give the rose a drink of garlic or better still plant a garlic clove in the soil next to the bush in question.

to be good layers for that time is good .with out seeing her s, she could be brooding, or egg bound, and I am sure you know they go through a phase of  not laying for awhile  when they loose their feathers and with the daylight going they lay less,or  crop bound. a trip to the vet might be in order.

I have just read about that white vinegar mixed with water and   is suppose to work,  but certainly the hose is good as the garlic I make   6 pint  of water with one clove and keep soaked for a week and it is strong and you can refill and it gets stronger so make sure you don't spray to young plants with it.

OK, who's got it?

someone  broke into my neighbours shed on Monday ,not for the first time and its always at five in the morning .Who are these early birds who are so low they have to steal.? do they find it exciting or is something for nothing .They must watch  and know when you are out or away and its not always who you suspect .
