Red currant pruning

We were also blessed, the birds left half for us!

crumbling rasberries

Be very gentle with them!

Probably as a result of the dry weather.  Raspberries like a moist climate.  They do well in Scotland.

Please explain why the ferns have to go.

Harvesting Seeds

And you have to make sure they are not from F1 plants because they will not breed true.

Weedkiller will only kill what it is sprayed on; it doesn't spread or linger in the ground.

You may have to let Roundup be your friend until you have got rid of the willow.

You will have to learn to relax or you won't enjoy your garden!

What type of mushroom / fungus is this ?

It is magnificent!

Please don't destroy it.

Use it to teach the boys how to research what things are.  Use it to teach them to leave some things alone.  Use it to teach them to respect natural things.

1st Time Growing Garlic

Posted: 24/07/2013 at 19:14

I stopped buying garlic some time ago, so when I want some I just pull a plant up.  That way you can see how it is coming along.

The foliage will die back when the garlic is ready. Then put it somewhere to dry out fully.

English forest design for front garden.

When you say 'front' do you mean between you and the road or where you sit out?

Is it 13 ft deep and the width of the house?  If it is only 13 ft deep it is too shallow for an oak tree or pretty well any tree.
