No flowers on Jasminium Officinale

Posted: 15/10/2013 at 12:26

Ok girls....know when I'm beaten!  Ha ha

I will cut my jasmine back in few weeks...just to shorten it a little but it is still carrying loads of flowers.  Spring is when I cut it hard ....halfway or less and the odd stem or two right to the ground..  However, I often get the whole pruning thing done early.  It's late for you guys to prune then but ...hee hee hee, I can get away with it down here 

KEF, nothing wrong with tomato food.  Think it's sound thinking 

Yes...yes it is a magic Cornish well Fairy.  You have your magic wand and I live with the Cornish pixies.

Hiya KEF. Maybe there's a reason why Eloise's situation is less sunny. ( bit of face saving here ) I have a feeling a lack,of sun is the reason for hers not flowering.  However, I'm surprised quite often by the ability of plants to thrive where, theoretically, they should struggle.  

Also womdered whether Eloise pruned her jasmine at all.....prune mine hard each year.  Also whether she is over feeding.  Sure Eloise will get back to us

Hey KEF......you dissin me cos I'm Cornish and bit daft?    Lol

On the radio this morn the talk,has been about life changing events in our childhood. ...Viz.programmes on the tv 

For me Casey jones, Popeye and the Magic Roundabout bring back memories.  I even had my own words for Casey.  

On the comedy front Ever Decreasing Circles was brilliant.  I was supposed be like the guy Martin was jealous of....can't remember his name for mo.  

So folks,.....childhood tv and best comedy from the past?

What should I do with these apple trees and when?

Posted: 15/10/2013 at 00:57

I have looked back to the start of this thread.  I too know how to prune apple trees whether summer pruning or winter pruning.  I have done plenty of both. I prune a friemd's orchard too and the crops every year are superb so my ways work.

Jim, your comments were offensive not just to Waterbutts and Berghill but to those of us who respect their views.  They gave advice based on their experience...as we all try to do.  Your attack on them was awful.  If  you disagree with them you should do so with advice of your own enabling others to decide for themselves and not attack their advice in the way you did.

The upshot is that we may lose 2 well liked members on the forum.  We don't  want to lose them. Both have been hurt by your comments....perhaps you meant well but I didn't read it like that. 

Hopefully jim you can eat some humble (apple?) pie here and do the right thing
