Rabbit's on the allotment and other Q's...

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 16:22

Just to add my experiences - rabbits can't jump very high but they can climb up and over 1 metre high fencing, so go taller. They can dig under anything, including my dry-stone walls. Get small-size mesh chicken wire as the babies can get through the larger size. Don't expect it to last long as rabbits can bite through the wire, you have to keep checking for breaches. And don't expect to win - the rabbits always find a way!

Found it - it's a Lonicera (honeysuckle) - should have guessed!

Never heard of honeyberry - what's the scientific name?

I had a great day, it's a lovely place for winter colour. And I got to see Nut's stunning garden as well! Thanks for the company, folks.

I've just sorted out all my seeds, I've got lots that I don't need. I'll bring them along tomorrow and you can all fight over them! Mostly free veg ones from last year's magazines, plus a few that are slightly out of date - I'm not doing veg this year, apart from potatoes.

The first Helleborus orientalis opened today - a nice pink colour. I love to turn them up to see their faces. The winter aconites are a lovely splash of yellow.

How often do you feed your Annuals?

Do you mean bedding annuals? In pots or in the ground?

Serious botanists would be very excited about this idea if it works, particularly where microspecies are involved, like Rubus or Taraxacum. But as Edd says, it would all depend on the database availability. Amazing to think that the technology is nearly there for a handheld genotyping device.

It would be a real shame if it ended up with the loss of the observational skills that make botany so fascinating, though.
