You needanother apple tree to go with the Braeburn,

a list here, http://www.orangepippintrees.co.uk/pollinationchecker.aspx?v=1008

conference is self fertile but is said to do better with another

see here, http://www.orangepippintrees.co.uk/pollinationchecker.aspx?v=2027

ditto Vics,

I've grown Conference as the only pear and got a crop, the Vics had other plums and I've never grown Braeburn.

Hi Philippa, Phytolacca americana might not like a hot dry site but it doesn't get damp soil in my garden and is fine.

Alan that's going back so far. I'll see if I can find the recipe.It wasn't that great and you might like to add something else to it. A bit 'rose hip syrup with a bite'

I agree, no doubt at all it's a phytolacca.

Why do you think it isn't Maharg?

Crocuses

Sounds a good plan KS. I didn't use a drill but the crocuses planted in narrow holes in the lawn are the ones that are still there
