A newbie question about seed collecting

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 23:16

If you just want the red ones of a particular height you can improve your chances by culling the ones that are obviously going to be wrong before they open and get pollinated. I'm sure you'd be able to see the colour before they opened. 

Seed Swaps

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 23:11

The seed swap has been very active over the last couple of years. Not everybody takes part, some will have reservations. Addresses are swapped by PM, not for all to see on the forum.

On a forum you soon get a good idea who you would and would not be willing to exchange addresses with. 

If you're swapping the postage costs are shared, otherwise you can send an SAE.

It works fine and will again I'm sure. All my spares were exchanged by about November but there's another seeding season coming up


Spring is getting closer.

Firewood Verdun.  We have a wood burning stove. Some slow burners would be good, we have a lot of willow which is quick. Hawthorn and blackthorn are slower and ash is good.

We used to burn in the past but anything less than 1-2 inches in diameter goes through the shredder now.

Sorry Dove

We've been out all day pruning/borderline tree surgery. Got a pile of stuff to shred that's taller than me and a great heap of logs. Does laurel burn well?

Yes Dove, sun.  

We've had a lovely day. Not a hint of rain til after 4pm and then not much. Rain does tend to miss us, great now but a bit frustrating in summer when we need some.

You're right Forester, we had our coffee break outside in the sun today.
