Re: Skip treasure

You did well there! Always nabbing skip treasure, mostly furniture. Over the years I've found a foot stool that I recovered with nice fabric, shelving units, a bed side cabinet, a woven wicker set of drawers for the bathroom, directors chairs, drying maiden, a large houseplant, huge patches of real ...

Oh my goodness, I can imagine. No wonder people apply to live in their woodlands on the basis of charcoal making.

Re: Thinking about keeping bees

The bees would live on my allotment so they'd have the run of the plots and the surrounding gardens. there's possibility that the allotments commitee will pay for me to do the course, if not I'm going to self fund it because it's something I really want to do. I don't know i...

Bee allergy test.

Well, I've never been stung by a bee or wasp and I have no idea if I'd be allergic or not. Which is maybe a little worrying considering I study solitary bees and wasps and often go out catching them for surveys. I'm thinking of keeping bees on the lottie and I'm wondering if there's a test I can hav...

Re: Growing fruit in pots?

Yeah, they should be ok if you give them the right sized pot and make sure they're ok for food and water. I've got two cherry trees, a blueberry and two peaches in pots. My mate has an entire mobile orchard of trees especially suited to containers as she's in the same situation as you. I can ask her...
