This winter

Posted: 21/09/2015 at 15:46
Just remembered there were loads of berries on the trees last winter. In fact there were so many the migratory birds which rely on them had no need to come this far South as there were enough further North. The winter was mild and wet.

For what it's worth, the weather this Summer will determine what the blossom and berries will be like next year. Look at hazel trees, for example, the tiny catkins were formed month's ago.

Nutcutlet I was going to post the same thing. How does anybody think berries mean anything but what has gone before. The blossoms - and berries - have been phenomenal this year. The weather must have suited the plants last year.

Even quite intelligent people say the British people voted for a Coalition Government in 2010. How?

By the way, the winter is going to be hard. Well I hope so. Cold is better than continually wet.

Pyracantha Growing Conditions

Keep the pyracantha well away from your front door. If you get a thorn in your hand it will go bad. Wear thick gloves when you prune it. They are pretty vigorous, but well worth growing.

Do a bit of research because the berries come in various colours. Choose one you like. Yellow, red, orange.

What is your reasoning for cutting the tops off? I think we have to just put this down as a bad year for some; me included. Last year I had so many I could hardly keep up with them!

No! Patience is the thing. Maybe it's a year when we don't get good crops.

What month is the sweet corn harvesting season?

You will have to examine the actual kernels, you can't really tell just by the hair.

Lily Regale?

Could it be a cross between Regale and another lily?

Garden Waste

Sorry, Lou, that is called fly-tipping. You may cut it up small, lots of people don't.

If you do it at night, is that because you know you shouldn't be doing it??
