Fig training - lesson 1

The shoots should be pinched out at the end of June - before mid-summer's day. Then they have time to grow lots of new shoots before winter. Make a note on your 2016 diary!

Have you actually read the booklet??? I make no comment about it being a man thing that the instructions are a last resort!

Have you consulted a professional? Ensure you are using the correct mixture of fuels for the machine. Do you have a handbook? You may be able to get one on the Web or from the manufacturers.

Sweet Peppers

Peppers freeze really well. Just cut them in half and remove the seeds and stem. Then freeze as they are. No blanching necessary, though they will thaw out soft.

What to do with this broccoli?

Leave the whole plant, it may, just may, give you another crop; but eat the shoots sooner, don't leave them until they flower.

I know a small basket of green chillies all ripened just sitting on the worktop. Are peppers the same?

Crab apple jelly on toast! Use it where you would use redcurrant jelly. For glazing. Before putting marzipan on the Christmas cake.

8 metres is over 25 feet, do you really want something so high? What are you trying to hide? A row of conifers of that height will be difficult to manage. Evergreens are pretty depressing with their never-changing greenery.

A few well-chosen shrubs or smaller trees will probably be more effective, and certainly more attractive.
