MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 21/08/2013 at 10:17

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!

Oh dear, so sorry to hear about your dog, it's dreadful when you lose a pet!

The dashes are new thing made by the techies, don't know what the point is, but all headings are like this now.

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!

I could be wrong, but I'm inclined to think it's a kiwifruit.

Flowerchild is right, but it would be interesting to know who sold them to you as gooseberries!

The daftest thing you've done in your garden

I did a stupid thing the other day. Was cutting back young trailers of my butternuts and promptly cut the main branch of the biggest butternut! Doubt if the other smaller ones will ripen before frost. Should have known better, did the same to perfectly good branch of my climbing rose last year!

I agree with Alan4711, it's worth a try, if you explain nicely. Maybe take a dog along with you once and tell them how thirsty it is!

I hope your swallows didn't fly into the new window glass looking for their nest. Have they nested under the eaves?
