Re: Mid-summer Bits and Bobs

Evening, after a recent thunderstorm today has been a lot cooler, picked the last of the peas today and did a lot of dead heading and light pruning of Roses and Buddleia. Eerily quiet with the railway line still closed after the tragic incident further up the coast, left a bit numb by it all.

Re: Rhubarb Wine?

You are missing out then Tony, all the more for those who enjoy them, there's a company near me that cannot keep up with demand if you can't make your own.

Re: Rhubarb Wine?

It wasn't my Dads recipe, not sure where he got it from, CJ Berry wine books are good basic books to use, I made loads of them years back, got a bit lazy now and haven't made any wine for a couple of years.

Re: Tomato conundrum

I water on a regular basis, not doing so usually results in growth spurts and split skins, so I water daily and once the fruit is set I then feed twice a week on most plants, those with a greater crop are fed every other day. These are "British Breakfast" know for very large trusses of fru...

Re: Chilli and pepper plants

Firstly I live in NE Scotland, so different climate, but somethings are pretty much the same over the UK, firstly, if plants are grown under cover they might need help with pollination. Every day once flowers appear I go round with a small artists paintbrush and visit each flower and remember to buz...
