Berries... Will any produce fruit this year if planted now?

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 11:32

Always a good probably principle NOT to pick fruit in first year.  Bigger and better crops in subsequent years but there are always exceptions (in hindsight)

Posy, absolutely true.  They are all the same.  Wouldn't want any  of them to depend on. 

Again I agree with you that I too enjoy the banter, squirming and deviousness of all politicians hence why Question Time is such a favourite of mine.  

its a silly thing that because we have different views and express them tt suddenly means we are not "friends".  

if I call Cameron a "notty boy" does it REALLY upset anyone here?   ("Notty" does suggest FUN, right? 

It's an odd thing when we are told not to discuss politics or religion here because it causes controversy.  Blimey!  I have lost count of the number of people who have left the forum because of gardening disagreements...the chemical versus the green lobby has been quite an aggressive one here.  

Nothing wrong with controversy on the level experienced here.

Cordless mowers

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 08:23

Yep, all to do with super technology Steve....rear roller.    (For stripes) 

My point about power supply was a different one, viz., I doubt the battery will supply 5 hours.  More like 40 minutes. 

Essentially, my advice about cordless mowers is if you cannot cut regularly and let your grass grow tall forget it.   otherwise they are a delight to use 

Is it OK to compost grass and moss which have been treated with mosskiller?

I would not put perennial weeds in the compost heap Bouleversee.  

If you have doubts about the chemicals used in lawn treatment simply don't take the risk.  Simple 

Vine Weevil Grubs

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 08:03

For future reference, I mix sieved garden soil with mpc and it seems to attract less vine weevils. A gravel mulch in pots helps.  I seem to have less problems with vine weevils now than before.....provado used on susceptible plants has helped too 

No need for a hammer Tetley...my thumb is sufficient. 

Is this a senior moment or am I correct?

Pardon?  What was that?

Good morning everyone 

cloudy.  No sign of sun and not sure I will see any over the next couple of days   doesn't  feel cold and it is dry.  

Have to help a guy sort out stuff this morning. his mother died recently and he is a little slow.  His family are likely to try to evict him even though the house is in his name so I am prepared to deal with this to make sure he keeps it.  Fun n games no doubt

Interestingly, if I expressed my views to remain in EU Punkdoc would not complain.

it seems brexit views are somehow racist, extreme or "stirring".  I have to confess to read ng out  some of the comments written here.  I have joked about the lynchmob often enough...blimey it is so true.  Oh dearie, dearie me I keep saying we should leave the EU during this build up to the referendum.  Shock, horror!

everybody needs to express a view.  Everybody needs to understand what the consequences will be because things will be very different either way.  it is not a vote to keep things as they are because it is a vote about which direction we go in.

it is as obvious to me as day following night that we in the UK are in a nightmare situation being in the EU. We are trapped in it.  I read recently that Cameron is not obliged to accept it if the referundum decides we leave!!  The EU cannot afford for us to leave.  It is going to be interestIng.    right now it is 50/50 but watch this space if we vote to leave....all hell will break loose. 

i believe life will be intolerable for the UK if we vote to remain.  Not stirring, not causing trouble; just an opinion contrasting, and therefore offensive, to Punkdoc's   

for the record, I never get upset by anything on the forum Punkers. I find it incredible that anyone does.  it would be an intensely boring forum if we constantly spoke about cakes and coffee and shopping at Asda.  I skim past these just as others can skim past my posts.
