I totally agree!! I always think the fallen leaves make a lovely mulch on the ground for next year!!

One of the yellow plum varieties would look good (and taste great) and the French varieties would love a warm wall. You may need a pollinator. A good fruit grower will be pleased to advise you.

Talkback: Collecting and saving seeds

I've just got on top of my garden after years of neglect, it was a former rental house. Looking at the price of plants and faced with planting an entire garden I turned to seed. Even as a beginner I've had success and saved myself a fortune. Although I possibly have more plants now than I knwo what to do with.

Talkback: Ivy

Posted: 28/11/2011 at 18:44
Our house has been ivy covered now for 20 years and I love watching the rain run down the leaves, knowing the old stone wall behind is warm and dry. We have it cut every year, like a hedge, so that that it doesn't develop into the shrub form or get into the roof/windows.. What does need watching are the other entrances you can forget about: we got the roots choking up the outlet from the shower. Wish more houses in the countryside were ivy covered rather than stark blue/white, shouting their presence across the valleys...

Talkback: Codling moth

This was the worst yr I have know for codling & plum moths. So I have used grease bands for the first time. Another problem with these pest are that they cause the fruit to drop prematurely & when you notice them it's already far too late

Talkback: Hybrid musk roses

Posted: 28/11/2011 at 18:44
I am moving to a new house 1 October. The front of the house is south-facing with a small "garden" in front. Right now it contains a few weeds and nothing else. I am looking for ideas on what to plant in front that would grow quickly, nothing too fussy, and not break the bank as with the move there are many other expenses. However, I want to do what I can to pretty up the front garden. I was picturing something climbing perhaps. Would these roses work for what I need?

Your basket of tomatoes look too good to eat. I think I would rather gaze at them for the time being.
