Re: non-grafted fruit trees

Breeder have spent generations developing trees for the traits we desire, in doing this they disregard the root system which generally speaking becomes miserable and under developed but no matter. The desirable traits can be grafted onto a vigorous root stock and all is well. You wouldn't want to o...

Re: How to kill a Holly Tree

Cut the stump to about 4ft, dig round the base and expose the roots, cut through them, remove stump.

Some of ours went into the chicken run to give them places to sit and preen and roost; others...

Re: Old Ivy on neighbours wall

We have some old Ivy that grew from our garden on to a neighbours wall. The Ivy was killed by a previous owner of the property. The neighbour believes that the dead Ivy is causing damp in their house and is demanding that we remove the Ivy and have their wall re-rendered due to the damage caused by...

In a small community, it can help to get those people on your side rather than seeing all farmers as enemies - which I don't think gasa...

Somebody buys house in country that can only be accessed through a cattle farm then complains about cows in the field. You can't make it up! Some farmer buys a farm with a bridle path and ROW through it and expects to be able to use that field without regard for other people's safety. You can't mak...

Stop condemning all farmers on the basis of one farmer's behaviour.
