Hi,Asho, i once had the same type of mini greenhouse.It got blown away continuously, in the end i packed it away, but im now thinking of using the plastic cover as a type of large cloche when the weather here in the 'desolate NW' worsens. good luck

Apple tree

Posted: 21/09/2013 at 21:16

Good evening.

I need some advice. I have lived in this house for 6 years, their is a beautiful magnolia tree, which when blooms has stunning pink goblet flowers. Height is maybe 30 feet tall. approx 3 feet from the magnolia is an old apple tree, which is in the shade of the magnolia. Produce from the  apple tree is minimal to say the least, I think the best solution is to cut down the apple  tree and buy a smaller patio type which i could TRY to grow into a cordon.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Finish the pond now or in the spring?

hi, I also would like to attract hedghogs, some have been seen on the cul-de-sac i live on.

 Their are a lot of hawthorn trees, brambles etc at the otherside of my back garden,then a railway track, where i often see foxs, which have also been seen on the road. 

i am curious to know would cats, squirrles and the foxs' eat the hedghog food?

thankyou
