CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE ?LOOKING FOR CASS REMOVALS

Posted: 01/09/2013 at 07:53

I think you are on the wrong forum, lucky, this is a gardening forum, doubt you will find any removal experts!

What is it and what's going on?

Here it is right way up. The leaf looks like a banana, but the flower certainly is strange!

Thought my "black" toms wouldn't ripen either, now they're all turning at once! Am completely swamped with Tumbling Toms, have decided to give one pot to neighbour so he can pick them himself!

Mine is just like that, Dove, plus putting in hooks and lifting, moving heavy baskets, pots etc. Just the way I like it!

Not all rhubarb varieties have red stalks, either.

Plant bush beans again instead of climbers, sick of knotted mess! Only plant 2 indeterminate tomatoes instead of 5 and 2 Tumbling Toms, got toms coming out of my ears! Have a go at potatoes in grow bags and try garlic again. Won't change much in the flower borders, happy with all the perennials this year.

That's great Anthony. I have tulips coming up year after year from predecessor and have lived here 17 years now.

It looks like it badly needed water. The whole centre disc of the flower is all seeds, but leave them until the whole plant has dried up, otherwise the seeds won't be ripe. If you are a wildlife friend, leave it completely alone and the birds will come and pick the seeds when they are ripe.

Hi Darren, have just looked at the site, looks ingenious! But have you tried just making a hole (the diameter of the hose) near the top of each butt and connecting them with pieces of hose, so that when one is full it flows over to the next one and so on? This is how my OH has done it, but only with two butts as we have two down pipes so the third one is separate.
