Buying a hammock online

Now you need two apple trees just the right distance apart . Haven't use mine for a couple of years - once you get beyond 27 getting in is much easier than getting out so you need someone else to bring you cold beer!

Question about Cotinus coggygria regarding pruning

Posted: 08/01/2014 at 16:34

Mine suffered bad wind damage a few years ago so I cut off the remaining branches leaving a 6ft trunk which I left over the Winter intending to take down in Spring. I was surprised to see lots of buds emerging so left it to grow on as a giant lollipop. If I were to go through this again I would coppice it.

Here I am complaining again.

On a more positive note you do have wonderful ice wine in Toronto.

Strange leaf? growing from the aphical meristem of apple seedling

It doesn't look like an apple seedling to me. Apples don't have serrated leaves like your seedling.

Talkback: Grey mould on soft fruits

Not impossible - http://www.winetrailwales.co.uk/temp/  I have enjoyed many's a bottle of Welsh wine and have a cellar full of superb English fizz going back 20 years. Just made a gallon of wine myself with a mix of greenhouse grapes and next year's vinyard vines currently in pots. There are some benefits to being an exiled Scot living in the soft South .
