Morning all, it's a wet and quite windy one here this morning, I needed my waterproofs taking Sasha out but she didn't mind coming back a soggy doggy.
Yes lillyrose, the trees are ok to stay in the pots for good The labels say they can be planted either in the ground or in 30 litre pots and will grow to 2 metres high. I got my son to check the web for me to find out what size pot a 30 litre is and he found a 30 litre one that was 40cm wide by 33 cm deep. When we went to look round a couple of places yesterday, I found some 45cm pots and have planted the trees in them. If you've got a Homebase near you, they've got 15% off this weekend and the 'patio' trees that were in ours are apple, pear, apricot, plum, the half dead peach and some cooking cherries which were covered in cherry blackfly.
Those green spiral canes are different aren't they I bought those at Chelsea when I went in 2010 and only just got them on the coach on the way home, good job I went for the 6 foot ones and not the longer ones!
A day for being indoors methinks, Lidl's have some pork leg joints at £2.99 per kg, so we've got one of those for dinner today. I'm going to use the preserving pan I got for Christmas and have a go at making some rhubarb and red cherry jam, I got the cherries off the market on Friday (2lb for £2) and hopefully, there will be enough rhubarb in the garden ready to use.
