Ohhh Nuts

Posted: 16/07/2017 at 19:08


I have a Hazel Nut tree that i have never thought about but 1 week ago i collected some twin nuts from the ground, left on window sill till today...they seem dry and i wanted to try them before i collect more from the tree.(its 20 feet tall).

Cracked them open and nothing all....just a thick skin under the shell.

Im sure when i collected these first there was a squidgy blackish stuff inside....i assumed this was a pre nut????

UV Bulb in pond

Happy spring.

Im just putting a new UV into my pond filter and i noticed 2 tiny balls rolling around in the tubes. The bulb is brand new and i dont want to fit it as its quite awkward to get in and out. It looks intact and perfect other than the tiny balls, are they to do with the UV or is it broken??

Any Ponders

I have decided to get all the small potted poppies into the ground so i will be cutting the bottoms off the pots and putting straight into my raised bed which has posts at the corners. I will attach some protection to the posts to protect the plants. I will put the big pots with 2/3 plants into the cold frame but im not sure if i should just have 1 plant per large pot???

Will the 1s in small pots ((2nd pic down)) produce pods in those pots???

Apparently poppies dont like transplanted so i may cut the bottom off the plastic pots and plonk them into a raised bed.....
