Re: Sign of the Times.

The Sainsburys in Dundee has an Argos shop, I guess now they've killed off all the high street independent shops they're moving up the chain, I wonder which charity shop will be the first to move into a supermarket.

Re: Suckers at base of crab apple tree

Anything chemical will go into the roots and kill the plant, I take it you would like a "standard" plant and it is not having any of it. I know there are more than one species of Malus, maybe have a search around and see if there's one that is less shrub and more tree.

Re: Suckers at base of crab apple tree

No expert, but surely anything stronger might damage/kill the main plant. Is this a grafted tree?

Re: Raspberry canes

Wood ash was my Dads "secret weapon", they do like potash, I will be making a new bed for some earlier summer fruiting ones.

Re: 2018 growing season

Potted on my seed onions and sowed some De Cayenne, Hungarian Hot Wax and Sweet Peppers in the heated propagator, proper gardening.

Re: 2018 growing season

Spread some manure on 2 of the raised beds, covered with chicken wire to keep the cats out, almost proper gardening, also moved the compost heap and turned it over, won't be ready this year.

Re: Mares Tail

I don't think there's is way to eradicate it, you might reduce it, but it has been around since before the dinosaurs

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs - 2018

Take care with that Westi, I'm glad I wear specs as it has saved me more than once from that kind of thing. We had a nice day today, but apart from picking up some farmyard manure, no gardening today

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs - 2018

We have snow this morning so that sort of puts an end to any thoughts of gardening for the day

Tatties now in their egg boxes out of direct light, cool and chitting away quietly.

Re: carniverous plants

I've seen Sundews at 2000 feet up in the Cairngorms, so some are clearly quite tough.

Cov are having a good season, my old club Leicester Lions are not doing so well in Nat2 North this year.
