Pond vacs

I wouldn't do that but mine is a wildlife pond and the wildlife lurks in the detritus

Spindle Tree

Posted: 04/09/2014 at 17:01

I have several of the wild spindle berry, E. europaeus, some years I hardly any berries in spite of all the flowers about and apparently plentiful insects. Not the right ones at the right time I assume

Unknown eggs

That would be my guess except that all those I find in pots are shiny white. Or maybe I miss the ones that aren't.

Ugly structure in garden

I'd fit a woodburning stove

If you've got flying ants today they'll be gone tomorrow. That's the end of it till next year. Not worth freaking out about, just part of life. Good food for the birds

Ugly structure in garden

Hi Peter, I think your assessment of this as an ugly structure is correct. It would take more than a lick of paint to make me want to look at that every day

Planting out seedlings

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 17:47

If I'd bought these I'd have them outside for now, but in a coldframe or cold GH when the weather turns really wintery. Apart from that I'd do as bekkie suggests

Are gingko trees easy to grow/look after??

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 17:43

They're quite slowin the early years but easily growable in the east anglian climate and my not very good soil.

I grew some from seed and they were so slow to get above a foot tall I gave them away.

The one I have now was several years old when it was given to me and had been cut back.

The only problem  I have with it is persuading it to be a tree. It wants to grow horizontally, which it does now by 12 or more inches a year. It's reluctant to make a vertical leading shoot in spite of my ties and stakes. I've accepted it as a gingko bush now
