Problems using the website

Haven't been on here for a while so it all looks very new  (on a desktop pretty hi spec) its very jumpy, it seems to be when I go to a new thread and all the side ads load, once they are there it seems to stabilise??

I done a seed tray of leeks last week to start off in cool dining room, then will move out into garden in a mini plastic covered shelf unit.  Want to wait until winds have died down before putting shelf stand outside.

Flower Sprouts

They are lovely, we saw and bought a stalk a couple of years ago from a farm shop under the name of Kalettes.  I grew some last year, they stalled over winter as did my other sprouts but I have started picking them now and they are lovely.  Growing more this year

The himalyan is a notifiable invasive species so I would get shot, there is an app "Thats Invasive" where you can report it if seen along with other notifiable invasives.

Raising the level of a lawn

How about keeping the lawn level as it is and putting a box hedge around the edges then you can seed what you have at the level you have and when you mow the edges of the lawn the box will mean you don't have to strim or shear the bits next to the bricks.

We don't even have side access so I really know where you are coming from and that is what I would do, obviously any low neat shrub would be good but I think box would look lovely with that design and it is evergreen

We put two canes in each of our beds tied at the top with old CD's hanging down, seems to have worked so far with gooseberries, greens, squash, seedlings.   They clatter when windy too.

If the queens have bred with an aggressive strain last year this could be coming out, that is why swarm control is good practise as you can breed out bad genes.  I am assuming these are your or someones hives and being managed .

Blossoming Apple

Posted: 28/10/2014 at 12:28

At the weekend after making some raised beds up the allotment I had a wander and noticed our dwarf apple tree is in full blossom........... It had blossomed in spring but no fruit came, I assumed it had been too dry and it is in a tad windy spot (we inherited it so grateful).  I done a tiny end prune Sept nothing major.  Will it be ok next spring??????
