Great, thanks Mo. I am in for some fun and games so. I will take a look at the wing again and see if I can trim it a bit more without going in to blood vessels. Hopefully will help.
Ok, I am back with another issue. I put the electric fence up. All went well...until last night. One of my chickens (where I clipped the wing but am thinking maybe not enough) flew out over the fence. This is a real issue as the rest of my garden has numerous exits to a field and road. Any ideas. Sh...
As a learning point, how did you get on with these? I saw on Beechgrove recently that George cut back his ranging squash plants so am a bit more sure of my ground on that now. The squash plants actually haven't needed as much support as I had envisioned. So I have just let them grow and flower. Hav...
I agree with Mo - I don't know of any "food" trees that are evergreen. Funny enough, all the trees I planted in my garden was to enjoy privacy. I have a hazel tree which not only grows fast but in late winter, produces catkins if that helps. The tree is so mature now that when I cut some ...
The height will depend on the rootstock it is grafted on. Can't think of an evergreen fruit tree. Damson would probably do OK, It's fine in the NW of England. Different sorts are available and different rootstocks There are other plums, all worth growing. Probably best to get advice from a local or...
Hazelnut trees were something I was looking at. Nurseries here won't stock them until late November. But I was considering maybe two or three of these. What type/s do you have? Net curtains - its actually the neighbours window (house beside us) looking into our garden. So not directly into our house...
I have a medium sized garden and am hoping to plant a couple of "food" trees to block off the neighbours top floor bedroom windows overlooking it. I have some apple trees planted, however am wondering what else I could add in. I was hoping for a tree that is: Evergreen 10-12' approx height...
Ah yes, the black tail. Thank you, thats great. I just got one with a Black Rock, so hopefully a good choice. Thank you again Karen, you've given me a lot of information on this and my other post.
Hi all, just wondering if anyone has any feedback on Red Columbine Black Tail chickens. Finding it difficult to find much information on them, as I believe they are a new hybrid.
Thank you Karen. Yes, I would definitely get 2, and not just add another 1. I am very worried about the pecking/bullying though. Chickens are like gold dust these days, so difficult to find. So thats why I was going to add another two now, rather than wait another year, as I sense things could be a ...
