MORNING FORKERS

It is a lovely tree Matty, but ours is about 18 feet tall after 10 years! Also, you will have to remove the suckers that come out on the root stock, otherwise it will revert to its original stock. Hope I haven't shocked you!

I will be planting mine out as soon as the dahlias that are finished are dug out, so just after the first frost. Should not do them any harm.

Since it will only be a small pond, you can always go out regularly with a small net and fish the leaves out. Also, don't forget to put a small ramp inside the pond, so that any other creatures (hedgehogs etc.) that climb up the outside one and fall in, can get back out again!

I tried to repost it the right way up but it won't. So I rotated it by 180 degrees and re-posted but it stayed upside down 

Phenomenal! I tried the same, but it refuses to go right way up, very strange, will have to ask OH why this occurs. Never mind, can see the picture anyway, and those with tablets etc. can turn them upside down!

Morning everyone! Hey, the e-mails are working again, had two this morning.

Have bought more compost to make a new bed at the back of our pond, lots of digging in to do now so I can finally plant the pampas grass, azalea, and buddleia buzzes.

Hope you all have a good day, don't work too hard!

No fruit showing on Butternut Squash in polytunnel

" I'm hoping pruning some of the excess growth will help."

Be careful when pruning, ladybutternut, I did this the other day and managed to cut off the branch with the biggest butternut! Follow the fruit back to where the stem starts before cutting anything off.

The dashes are a new invention (reason unknown) by the techies of GW magazine! Not your fault!
