    Sowed a quick covering of Green Manure across the veg patch today, it was Phacelia, and half a packet of Red Clover.

    Better late than never.
    Had about 2inch of rain here in the last few days, ponds are very full, but best of all are the waters butts are almost full up as well.

    Still have Garlic and Shallots to plant out yet, but its too wet.

    Also remembered I still have my Sweet Pea seeds to sow.
  4. My poor lemon tree! Can you help?

    by , 15-11-2009 at 02:10 PM
    I am just not sure what to do with my lemon tree, now 2 years old with me. Although I am east coast Scotland, I have an outdoor vine from which we enjoyed loads of grapes this year!

    Back to the lemon tree! Should it be bought inside in winter, or left out protected with fleeces/wraps etc?

    I bought mines in recently, but it has been losing leaves, and seems to have a whitish coating at the base of the leaves, this is troubling. Hope you can help.
