I bought maidens to train as espaliers......takes slightly longer but makes a far better shape .  Cheaper too.  

Unnos, espaliers only for spur bearing apples and pears.

Wot you after now Edd?   

I took out a free trial for gardeners world mag.......not had it regularly for a couple of years.

to the publishers as well as to the members here, I felt it had very little to offer.

sorry Caroline, neither  an antidote to depression nor an inspiration.

 Think I will publish my own magazine......Verdun's World. 


The best onions from seed.....

Afternoon Edd

Would never use sets for The Kelsae

seed is always better than sets but sets are more convenient 

ooooooo, that is an early sowing ...Dec 2.......

always regarded onions as following day length, so sowing after Dec  21/23 but as soon as possible thereafter for max size.  for me, slight heat for germination and then grown cold.  Bear in mind, generally, temps are never too low for long here but resulting onions always excellent both in size and quality.  

However, we all garden differently.  (My way is best .....of course 

Fleece or Bubbloewrap

Fleece for me everhopeful.

if its in a glass green house fleece will be ideal and sufficient in my opinion.  Bubble wrap is not a good protection Treehugger it tends to hold moisture.

One night Tom the nightwatchman dreampt the plane his boss was due to catch crashed and everyone was killed.

worried about this Tom informed him his boss who decided not to take that flight.  As Tom said the plane crashed with no survivors.

grateful for this warning Tom received a thank you of £100 and the sack.  

Why was Tom sacked?
