When I planted my fruit trees I read - RHS book- to take the blossom off the first year so that they concentrate on root growth and structure. It was sad pulling off the open blossoms. Last year, their 2nd year, I had blossom and a small crop of apples, no pears though, and they seem to be really well rooted and stong.

Because I am growing some as cordons and a couple as pyramid shape I do a late summer prune. I will cut off top when weather warms up in early spring from plum

All I want for Christmas is...

Morning All

Hope Becks is feeling better. Maybe Docs as you don't want it lingering on for Birthday and Christmas.

Lovely chicks Geoff though I must admit photos are as close as I want to get.

Choc - Christmas tree

Good luck Jean, it gets very emotional - Mother stuff still needs sorting. Skip is the best place to trash memories you don't want.

Had to give up till really late last night on the Forum. Also had some ilayer I wanted to see and that was a blank too. Like the advent calender prize today. In fact I've liked ALL adventcalender prizes

I See we still have the same old faces.

I take them - the ones that say extra and always put some honey in them not taste as bad. But then could be your taste is iffy at moment.

Have to rememebr though that you can't take other stuff with lemsip. Now I can sleep when I need to if not well. Spent first 10 years of children totally sleep deprived, especially when unwell!!

I knew some one   who had quintuplets. She said she knew almost straight away as she was SO sick. That would make an interesting succession!!

Very quiet here Forkers.
