Honey Fungus: What To Grow?

Posted: 20/10/2013 at 16:57

We have this in an old birch tree stump.  I have been frightened to dig it up in case I spread it but it doesn`t look as though I can prevent that anyway.  It doesn`t appear to be affecting brambles (we have plenty of those !)  nut trees, hawthorn or holly.

 

We have been given 3 fruit trees - a Bramley Apple, a Pear and a Cherry. Anyone know if these are susceptible ?

Talkback: 10 uses for nettles

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:29
Only query I have on this excellent article is what do you mean by
"the end of each season". I have asked already in 2 places at what stage it is best to cut the nettles down to avoid sacrificing butterflies and ladybirds.
I let a big patch grow in my garden but the "gardener" I paid to tidy it up massacred them. I only have a few left and fear we have destroyed a lot of butterfly eggs. I really need to have a plan for keeping them in check.

Talkback: How to feed your plants

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:29
My runner beans and sweet peas slow growing - I used soil from neighbours old raised beds with compost underneath - fed once with tomato fertiliser.

How often can you feed ? I believe I read you should not over feed and I have no experience so am nervous of doing this. Also is wood ash high in potash fertiliser ? Can I use bonfire ash to feed plants. Is tomato fertiliser ok for all fruit and veg and also for flowers ?

Re spraying white fly, does ordinary soapy water contain fatty acids. Do you need simple soap solution or can you use a non biological soap powder to make some ?
