I have 2 and 1/2 year old cordon on it are 2 pears. This is a photo of leaves on one of them. Is this rust? What can rid it of it or is it going to be a permanent problem? Would the best thing be to dig it up befor tree gets any bigger, and infection spreads?? At th moment cannot see it on other pear and is not on the 3 apples also on the cordon.

Variety is 'Louise Bonne of Jersey'. The other one is Concorde

making leaf mould

Thanks every one.

Leaves will be mainly oak - lovely tree overhangig corner of garden with hawthorn, beech and others thrown in. Will use it with lid off sounds good to me.

Now I have to get a larger compost bin to use for garden waste etc.

making leaf mould

I ordered an extra plastic compost bin which has turned out to be a lot smaller than my requirements. Every year we have loads of leaves, which I haven't composted before Can I put the autumn leaves we accumulate in the plastic compost bin or are is plastic not suitable for leaf mould?

Hi

WEnt to Harlow Carr last week and took this hoto as Actea/Cimifuga is on my wish list. The plants did not seem to have large clumps of flwers but there were a lot of plants. 

Went to their garden centre as thought they would have some but alas no

Photo not Brill but gives an idea.

beetroot - What's wrong

Posted: 11/09/2012 at 13:57

My carrots and spring onions did not appear. Beetroot was from a second attempt at getting a crop - sowd them in modules first and seemed to have worked

Hi

Unfortunately my cluster of newts have gone. (cluster sounded like a good collective noun for them) I went out armed with camera etc but I guess I disturbed them too much when i found them. Near the area I was clearing is a wood pile and some old shelving. They could well have gone ther so I am not doing anything to that patch.

I did learn that when you touch them it is best to have damp hands

What a great photo
