Potato tree

If you're talking about Solanum crispum it won't kill an apple tree unless it totally covers it in growth so that the apple leaves can't find the sun. 


What damage has the wind caused you?

The downside to a good view. We're pretty exposed but in the east we rarely get anything like you get in the west.

The Javan dust and our floods and winds  bring it home to us that we're not really masters of the world

Hostafan, that's bad. Where are you, it looks very exposed. 

No real damage here, masses of small and medium sized sticks to pick up, but no floods or structural damage so far. Tonight's forecast looks wild again.

The more cement you can get between the slabs the better it will last. Very thin cement doesn't survive long. Try and scrape out the dirt to expose as much of the sides of the slabs as you can. The cement needs to adhere to the sides of the slabs not the soil.

yes to clean out.

Don't dry things out.

You're unlikely to get slabs dry enough to suck the moisture out of the cement at this time of year but this could be a problem if you leave it til summer. Wet the slabs, don't dry them.

The st john's wort used medically is Hypericum perforatum.

Not sure what happens if you eat Hypericum 'Hidcote',

Tracey, I sleep downstairs every time a gale hits. I like the concrete floor (with a mattress), I don't feel the house shake and add earplugs for a vast improvement.

That red warning wasn't over Blackpool or anywhere else when I left home this morning
