Doris: No we don't get much snow where I live. Up north and Scotland get snow more often.
Like you it is a big deal here too. The country just does not cope when we get snow.

crosseyed: Do you get a lot of snow there?  We had snow Friday...about 3 inches...It's almost completely gone now.  It's always a big deal here because it rarely snows.

Cut it as close to the ground as possible then apply herbicide treatments as necessary. No guarantees expressed or implied.
Wishing ye great success.

Bernice:  I know how frustrating it is.. one year Dan was having to get out in the mornings and pollenate the squash plants.. I learned a lot that year.. 
I also learned when the plum tree we had gotten a crop from the year before didn't produce that next year.. it was due to not having a male plant close enough go figure..

Subjekt: Re:
Bernice:  They aren't being pollenated.. if you don't have enough bees and other flying insects that would pollenate you would need to get a can of polenater usually found at your Nurseries and Farming stores.. it is usually in spray bottles.. if that isn't the case then you might not have enough male orange trees around.. funny as it sounds that might be another solution.. I know plum trees need the male tree around to produce..

Subjekt: Re: Beer
skipinnz: Beer I'll use, making it 'investigation safe' is easy enough. Yet I am finding (after finding various articles on the net) foil and copper are not to slugs taste! As a point blank deterrent it's discouraged all but one little salad muncher. Though that could have been through proximity to a low wall.

(V): I make home brew and I find the tailings in a small pot are excellent, and to make them child proff you can place it under a pot as long as there is acess for the slugs.

Just a quick question on slug and snail control...

I'm trying out using aluminium foil as a deterrent rather than using slug pellets. Can anyone advise on the effectiveness of aluminium foil v copper, as I've heard good things about it as well.

Or, if you've not found them effective as a deterrent, can someone recommend a good animal and children safe alternative?

Cheers :)

Subjekt: Does anybody like celery???
If you buy a whole celery and cut the base off it, put it into a bowl of shallow water and leave it for about a week. ...it will grow....there will be a couple of new stems sprouting from the middle and there will be roots growing from the bottom....can be planted in the garden and kept moist until it really gets away :)

It has been 8 weeks since we had a cyclone rip through our garden. I am absolutely astounded how much the garden has grown since then...Of course I had to cut everything back as it has been ripped around and was looking so straggly...now everything is looking so healthy and attractive. The garden is looking fabulous.

Bernice:  It's a pretty little thing.. although, it looks similar to one we found up at the Ranch a  few years back when we were painting the house.. I was doing the bottom section and the back side of the house where the basement windows were.. I jumped back the dang thing was huge for a spider around here.. Dan just laughed at me and said it wasn't anything to worry about.. then he came down to it and grabbed a piece of wood letting it get on the wood he moved it to another location so I could finish painting the one section.

Bernice: I have read before that it can take up to 5 years for a planted young tree to bear fruit. (I assume this is what you did)
If you planted it from seedling, it can take 7 or 8 years.

I should add, I'm no expert. LOL. This is just what I had read somewhere, in the past.

I have a navel orange tree in my yard for the last 2 1/2 years....it has only grown slightly but has no signs of bearing any fruit....it is next to a meyer lemon that has more fruit on it than you could imagine. any suggestions as to why this has happened?

Foxy Lady:  Dan is wondering how many you have? and do you have both the Male and Female plants.. One of the species really doesn't do much but act as a polenator. I remember our neighbors had a plum tree.. we would get a good crop of plums every other year.. since there was only one plum tree around.
