Cemetery Planting

Had you thought of Primroses, because they have usually died down before the grass-cutting season starts.  Perhaps a clump of snowdrops, because they give promise of Spring.

Red pepper problem.

But Elizabeth has a conservatory; I wouldn't give up on them yet, they may go through the winter.  The plant look healthy.

Can you tell me what this is?

It may smell of lemon, but it doesn't taste of it.  But then smell is a great part of taste.

Rat In The Compost Bin

Lucky star gaze lily.

Not so lucky Highland jeannie.  You'll need stronger wire than chicken wire.  Weldmesh would be better, with small holes.  Just place the compost bin on it.  The rats usually move in from the fields about this time of year.  They are rarely solitary!

Borrow a Jack Russell or similar terrier.

Are they eating the potatoes or are they after worms and insects?  If there are a lot of them they are probably rooks.

Apple picking and storing

Posted: 29/09/2013 at 20:15

Do not attempt to store windfall apples because they will have been bruised and they will go rotten and infect all the others.

Use them up, process in some way or freeze.

If you want to store apples they must be unblemished and picked from the tree.

Sunflowers

Well it just depends where the bird seed came from.  There are lots of multi-stemmed sunflowers, but usually the birds polish off all the seed so it doesn't get a chance to germinate.

Ideas needed to cover unsightly soil bank!

Cotoneaster for one.  There'll be lots of suggestions along soon when the site is sorted out.

Zoomer, there are lots of greens that go through the winter.  And best of all, leeks.

To be honest, I think it's a crop that is best left to the professional.  If they are still small now, there's not much time for them to grow much bigger.
