I wouldn't care what type of tree they are....we moved into the bungalow that we have been in for 25 years now because of the huge sycamore at the bottom of the garden that I fell in love with. Western Power came at the beginning of the year, wanting to cut it down, so that they didn't have to keep trimming husband told the surveyor that came that if they cut the tree down, his wife would cut their b*lls off!! He was pretty much correct... and they came and trimmed it instead!

I know sycamore are thugs in the garden, but no-one should be insisting on cutting down any mature trees in my opinion, unless they are sick or falling over due to damage .Lou12-stand your ground, and as Runny says, keep your eye on them

Just about to plant some Autumn lettuce help needed

Thanks Runny-I will get me some of those! I usually grow mine in containers, so I can site a container close to the house where the temperature should keep the frost away.

Runny, what are the winter Carrots that you sow, and when do you sow them?

Well CC, my Carrots, Potatoes, Shallots, Cucumber, Onions, Raspberries, Strawberries and Lettuce have all been fab- Tomatoes have been awful, and my Dwarf Beans not good either.

Looking forward to getting going next year though!

Posted: 24/07/2015 at 18:41 another one-Apple and Herb Jelly.

600ml Apple Juice(a carton is fine)

300ml white pickling vinegar

3 to 4 tablespoons of your favourite herb combination

1 bag of jam sugar

Warm the juice and vinegar together with the sugar to dissolve, then add your chopped herbs and a knob of butter. Boil for 4 minutes only, then allow to cool a little before pouring into sterilised jars. Put lid on whilst still hot(be careful not to burn yourself when doing this-use a cloth or teatowel to cover the lid). When cooler, turn upside down to make sure that herbs are evenly distributed. Lovely on carrots and cabbage with your roast dinner

You can also use cider instead of apple juice
