hi all,

I have some some different types of aspargus in a row. one plant is now in the third year and has always produced only one very strong spear the others are only 2nd year and have multi spears but much thinner. the stronger single spear type always comes up later than the other plants. do I cut this strong spear this year to get the plant to produce more or still no cutting at all ?

Hi everyone,

I have a couple of fruit tree which I planted close to my estabished  ones.this is the first year they have blossomed the question is should I protect this week with bubble wrap as a fleece as cold windy weather expected or leave nature to take care.?. They are reasonably sheltered by hedge and fence one is a plum the other apple.I did have hover bees around last few days. 

cloudy today no frost

Firstly thanks for a great response and warm welcome to everyone.

Verdun thank you I can now relax and let the winter do it's worst.

Flowering Rose I may try another fig outside but I am limited for space as I have packed in a patio raspberries and roses, a wildlife and fish pond , fruit trees and bushes.I love to fit in runnerbeans broad beans also.

Brumbull thanks I will read and digest all this info what more could I ask for having browsed the web here and there I'm glad I ended up here !.Also I have had a dabble with some chilli's this summer and interested in these.

thanks again for the rapid response.
