    Did you seal the cuts Lynn,Because it’s not a good time of the year to prune them,Best time is when the sap starts rising ,It seals the wound,

    • Thankyou Allan,will do, we weren’t sure if we needed too, what is the best thing to use? I’m going into town tomorrow & we are planning a gardening day on Thursday. :good:

    When you let too many stems fruit ,It reduces the size of the fruit. I found that by removing the new shoots all but two as they come through the ground ,You get bigger and more fruit with more juice in them. :rose:

    Hi Anne, Very early morning, Bt the look of my blackberry stems,I’m going to have another good crop this year,Same with the blueberries,The evergreen one has lots of fruiting buds on it,while the deciduous one is still dormant.but with swelling buds.All my snowdrops have been out for weeks,Will be thinking about starting some seeds off soon. :rose:

    • Hi Allan … late morning here ;-)
      I remembered what you said about cutting back to two stems, but it’s a big healthy plant and I have 4 or 5 long stems raring to go. I hadn’t twigged it being evergreen, which would explain the prolific green growth still there … but have many swelling nodes that promise fresh growth and berries later too…[Read more]

    We always used to play in the ferns {bracken] when we were kids, They grew up both sides of the valley,Then a couple of years ago the spores were classed as cartnajenc ,Don’t know if the spelling is right, So they sprayed them with god knows what. From helicopters.
