Well, they are all used as informal measurements and comparisons.  The length of a London bus; as in the latest massive ship is the length of 58 London buses; that was on TV the other night.  An area the size of a football pitch, the Isle of Wight, and a very common one - Wales, they say it all the time - and lastly, an area the size of France.

Best eaten after a frost.  Unless, of course they are an early variety. The frost will also get rid of caterpillars.

Or maybe try an Apple Day.  Look on the net, there may be one near you, though it's getting a bit late now.  Also look on the Brogdale site.  Or look at the photos on the fruit tree nursery sites.

Are you planting the raspberries too deep?  They don't like that.

Can anyone help

Deadly nightshade is pretty rare and grows on chalk and people really shouldn't say plants are Deadly Nightshade unless they actually know the plant.

Woody nightshade is very common and I've never heard of anybody being poisoned by it though undoubtedly someone, somewhere has been.

I would get rid of it because it seeds prolifically and is a bl**dy pest!

Ivy out of control

How did you let it get that far?  Don't put bleach on it.
