Fruit Trees Manchester

Thanks for the info, I actually live 20mins from Reddish Vale so I went with desert apples and got myself a new tree. I have also been looking at plums but again not sure how well they would do.

Thanks, I'm not South facing but there should be good light during the day. I was wondering if there might be a hardy clementine or none cooking Apple tree that wouldn't mind the northwest climate.

Hi everyone,

Can you advise of fruit trees that would happily grow and fruit in the Northwest of England.

Self pollinating, also I already have cooking apple, damson and cherry.

Sorry for the late reply I have been working away.

i have fed the tree and trimmed loose branches, I'm hoping it grows well as I have good spot for it!!

Hi Everyone,

A friend had a tree in a pot that they didn't want and I have taken it off them, with the hope of bringing it back to life. The tree does need a slightly larger pot if not for the tree just to make it study in the wind.

The soil is moist but I can't see to get the tree to look healthy, is there a good food I can put in the pot or will any plant food do?

Here is a picture of the tree, I'm not sure of the type.


Boundary advise

Posted: 09/05/2015 at 18:31

I was reading what you posted Dovefromabove and it kinda confirms my fears that if they stick to what they are permitted without planning permission then I can't do much about the design.

Do they have to provide me with a copy of the plans? Or even inform me of their intentions?

Thanks for the advice so far, To answer 1Runntbeak1 I checked the hedge base and the actual "stumps" for the hedgerow are mixed and seem to come from both sides of the imaginary middle line between our houses.

Boundary advise

I'm hoping someone could advise me on a boundary issue.

A little info, I live in a semi detached house with large bay windows and the living rooms are at the back of the property. The distance between each houses bay window is around 3 feet. Between the back bay windows there is a well established hedge that runs from the house wall down the garden acting as a boundary. 

My neighbours are planning an extension and I want to know if there is anything I can do as I have the following concerns.

1) Can they pull the hedge up without my permission? I love the hedge as looking down my garden I have birds and greenery. I do not want a wall right up to my bay window running down the garden.

2) The sunlight comes from my neighbours side, the height of an extension would stop light coming into my living room. It will cast a large permanent shadow across my lawn and flowerbeds, this will exaggerate drainage issues (Surface water) I have in the area, no direct sunlight will cause me to change the flower beds to better suited plants and I will need to move my seating area as there will be no direct warm light.

I have checked paperwork from when I bought the house and the boundary side in questions is listed as "responsibility unknown". 


Thank you for any advice

Where did you find them on primrose? I can't find them, I can see some but none as big or the same shape as the one in the picture.
