What do you do or what did you do at work

Posted: Yesterday at 17:55

Our local agricultural college does a certificated horticulture coarse and a garden design coarse, so I would have thought other agricultural colleges do too if you have one close by. Good luck.

I think no3 is possibly an echinecea( cant spell it).

Surely these are slow or struggling?

are the raspberries summer or autumn fruiting? My autumn ones hav'nt got going yet.

Apple tree against a wall

I've did a pear and an apple about a month ago an they weren't much smaller than yours, by the look of it.

I'm quite excited by my new family. I didn't expect anyone to use it this year, I thought they would take a while to get used to it.

I just went to make a cup of  tea and noticed a pair of bluetits in and out of the new bird box I put up about six weeks ago, they seem to be taking food in but I havn't noticed any activity before let alone nest building. Other half rung just as I'd sat down to type, he would like updating on a weekly basis as to how my new (blue)tits are doing.......And he wonders why he gets sent away for three months at a time.

Irregular tumbled bluestone

Posted: 20/04/2014 at 18:46

I think the only area in the UK to have bluestone is in South Wales and is probably under a conservation order because of it's uniqueness, some of Stonehenge is made from it, so it would have to be imported, as Hostafan says, possibly from US. You can get blue beds in some other British sandstones, I've seen blue in woodkirk and clipsham but it's difficult to predict when and where it's coming up.

mystery plant

It looks very similar to the green manure I grew over winter and that was mustard of some description.

Anybody know what it is yet???

Is it a flowering quince type thing? My accuracy is astounding!!!
