Grapevine pruning advice please

Posted: 01/01/2015 at 17:36
Firstly thanks very much for your support and advice. Really helpful. It's not a seedless variety but is certainly fence trained on the rod and spur system. Although I can't wait to prune it, I'll hang fire and take your advice. Thanks again

Hi, it's late December so I'd like to prune my grapevine. But before I do, I'd be really grapevine for any advice or tips as to where you think I should cut back to please? 

Thanks in advance!

getting rid of slugs

Posted: 08/09/2013 at 19:04
For me, the best way to keep slugs at bay is to apply nematodes early on in the season as this also kills all the little black ones that seem to do so much collective damage. Then I go out with a torch and a bag about 10pm most nights where I tend to find about 50-100 slugs a time - it is by far the most effective way of controlling them. You only have to do it a handful of time to really notice a difference.

The neighbours think I'm a bit weird but hey, they'll get used to it

Another clue that might prove helpful to identify is that the seeds are white! Does that help anyone?

Thanks Potty! 

I've been researching all night trying to see if I could find some images to see if I could identify this sunflower but as people just seem to use stock images it's proving really difficult! 

In my reasearch I did find these giant sunflower varieties: 

Mammoth
Russian Mammoth
American Giant
Titan
Skyscraper
Humongous
Giant Grey Stripe
Giant Sungold
Mongolian Giant
Taiyo
Tarahumara ( white seeds)
New Jersey Giant

I'm also finding that people call different varieties different things like mammoth, Russion Giant, Mammoth Giants etc.

Would love to find out once and for all! All help appreciated
