Which garden hose should I buy?

Posted: 09/07/2013 at 10:08

Get a reinforced one that won't kink and it's worth spending a bit more on brass fittings. The plastic ones crack and break after a while due to UV-light and changes from hot to cold weather.

Hi Barbara, click on following RHS site. Scroll down and on the right you will see "Propagaton". Click on soft wood or hard wood and it will show how.

Don't know how to prevent the birds, apart from dangling some old cd's from sticks stuck in the ground around the bushes, we only have sparrows here and they don't seem to like berries.

As far as keeping the berries is concerned, I spread them out on baking paper on a pizza tray (or similar), put them in the freezer for a couple of hours and then into a plastic freezing bag, seal well and put back into the freezer. This way they stay nice and loose and you can take out however many you need at a time. They thaw out quite quickly and are just like fresh ones!

Help needed

Help is also actually quite close at hand, if you click on "How to" at the top of this page, you will find info on how to take cuttings! Another possibility is Youtube. Enter "taking cuttings" and you will find dozens of tutorial films!
