Carex trifida "Rekohu Sunrise"

Posted: 21/12/2014 at 18:19

Philippa, no I don't grow this one but I have already selected it for the new year having checked it out over past few weeks. 

it seems to be pretty adaptable in not needing wet conditions as many carex do but I have earmarked a position in sun but in good soil.  Your South facing site would be my preferred position Philippa.  Wouldn't add manure.  

HELLO FORKERS!

Oh KEF, leave OH alone.  It's only a silly dancing about prog. 

I feel sick as a pig. Missing out on my tea cos I was forced to eat choc marzipan all afternoon. 

Wherever it was said earlier I agree with sentiments expressed that you all are a pretty good bunch here.  Happy xmas folks

Morning all.  Season's  greetings

had to dismantle a huge wardrobe yesterday for my niece for someone to collect.  Every piece, esp the glass sliding doors, were bloom'in heavy .  The  buyers were a pain.  although price was agreed they himmed and hammed. (Doesn't look right that) fussed and moaned.  Essentially they demanded more off the price.  Luckily I was there.  They were getting a bargain but knew my niece was moving. Finally, I said...."you want it?  Pay now.  If not go now".  My niece was paid there and then . Until then I kept out of it but often young girls are seen as easily bullied.

but.....her stuff is everywhere. tomorrow the big stuff...cupboards, beds, etc etc etc etc will be brought over. Day later will be cleaning her flat.  As I said at the start, "season's greetings

Pruning an apple tree

Posted: 20/12/2014 at 21:07

I planted an orchard for a friend few years back.   I check annually if I can but any over vigorous branch needs to be looked at esp if it is considerably thicker than the rest of the tree.   Had a plum there that was missed....its a near 6 acre garden.....and I had to remove a branch far bigger than the rest of the tree put together.  It seems to be ok but next year will tell if it will survive

for me now summer pruning is all that is needed.  Cropping is regular and heavy

Those small snails will do a lot of damage......my sense is that the foliage is great hiding and breeding place
