This is was taken in my garden using my old faithfull Kodak
Jam and chutneys should use up a few kilos
Thanks for that Bob, I hoped that might be the case. I will get some Armillatox for the nearby trees just in case. Have a good weekend
Got all this to look forward to with our pink chestnut tree. Our plan is that once its felled and the tree surgeon has ground out the stump, and we,ve got out as much of the root system as possible, we will rotivate the area and use it for veg growing. Does that sound ok or are we asking for trouble. Will look up the Armillatox product for the surrounding shrubs/trees.
leave a bin liner of dead leaves around, guarenteed nesting distination for most agressive wasps got stung 3 times, little B*@x**s!!!
Hi Mallingopal,Are they too congested? Mine stopped flowering so split them up and repotted them last year after they had died back. I dont put them under cover and they had to endure a bit frost, but they all flowered all this summer. I keep them fairly rootbound and feed them and put mulch on top (usually horse manure, as I put that on almost everything with no adverse effects!) These plants are about 10 yrs old so as the others have said before, it may be that yours are still young, or did they come into flower in the past?
try primroses, they would look natural and you can propgate them easily.Bluebells if its shady
I tried Kohl Rabbie this year, loved it as a coleslaw in salad or boiled in soups, very easy to grow and you can cook toe leaves like cabbage.
Hi Verdun, sorry I,ve just been catching up on this thread, it was the Ying Tong song!
We named our siamese cat after it!!
Anyone remember the Shadocks, it was a bizarre French cartoon of creatures on other planets??!!!
Hi Clarington, re bubblewrap. I would insulate all the panes if you are in a cool area. It might also be a good investment to get a parafin heater or electric for really bad weather.
