Fruit trees / bushes

Posted: 22/11/2012 at 22:04

I would like to get a couple of fruit plants for the garden, they would have to be ok in pots as we live in a rented house and plan to move within the next year or so to our own place. Anyway we both like plums and gooseberries, and have decided on the varities of victoria plum and HINNOMAKI RED gooseberries. Can anyone advise where is a good place to buy online as I have only ever bought seeds before.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Gooseberries for pots

I remember reading in last months mag about planting gooseberry in pots, but I can't remember what varieties they said would be suitable and I can't find my mag. Can anyone help? I want a nice sweet gooseberry you can eat straight from the bush (can't be bothtered making jams etc lol)

Any help much appreciated

Heres the picture I sent T&M and Amatuer Gardener, both came back with either blight or Mg deficiency. Looking at the photos you linked to Italophile it looks like Mg deficiency to me?

Another person has now suggested it could be magnesium deficiency! Not sure what to do now!

I tweeted Thompson & Morgan with a picture of my potatos as I thought they may have blight. They tweeted back saying it looked like the start of it and to try something called bordeaux spray. Can anyone tell me if this is worth the cost i.e does it work?

I've dug a few of the spuds up and theres no tubers or anything just roots.

Any help much appreciated.

My girlfriend really loves Jasmine, but as we live in a rental property and plan on getting our own place in the future we would ideally like something which we would be able to move with us. Has anybody got any ideas on what we can do?
