Re: Tunnel vision

Looking wonderful. I am quite inspired by your grape, I keep thinking I will put two in my tunnel, but I am really bad at pruning things back, I have a hard time side shooting tomatoes, they just look so happy growing away. I am guessing you have to keep pruning off side shoots etc to keep it tame?

Re: Cherry tree help

it is under aphid attack, blackfly, possibly greenfly in the scrunched up leaves, they will affect the tree eventually how you deal with it is up to you, I am organic, I would probably hang a couple of fat balls in the trees to attract tits, they will harvest aphids while they wait for the fat, remo...

Re: Tomato trial results

Did I ever send you some seeds called Oddo, I called them that because I have no idea what they are, but people seem to love the taste, they grow very quickly and produce fruit that has a great flavour, seem to have great cold and blight resistance too

I bought three sorts of strawberries this year, Honeoye, Alice and Cupid for strawberries over a long period of time.
