Maybe a daft question. After moving to our new house I'm realising that the garden is much more shady than I had thought. Although the back of the house faces south, the garden is shaded by the house at the bottom of the garden and is completely in shade by 5.00 now. So my question is, can I get an idea of how much higher the sun will be in the summer and therefore how much sun the garden will get then, so I can plan my planting, seating etc.

Well over 10 years ago I bought a Conference, Concord, Williams bon Chretien family pear tree on dwarf rooting stock - from either Poundstretcher or Lidl, can't remember which. It has fruited well most years with the first to be ready the Chretien, then the Concord and quite late the Conference.

Last year the tree went bonkers! Masses of all three varieties and a spurt in growth. This year, with the exception of just one small Conference, it produced loads of quite large Chretien over the entire tree which were ready in mid-August.

The Chretien is my least favourite - it has a bland lemony flavour and doesn't keep nearly as long as the Conference.

My question: is it likely that the tree has reverted to a single variety? It has grown a lot last year and this so something is going on :BangHead:

Hi Ya, Wish me luck as I am in hospital tomorrow for a stent fitting to my aorta artery due to an aneurysm. Will be in a couple of days but I am a little concerned and treating the subject with some trepidation in spite of the confidence and great way the staff are conversing. Well fingers crossed.

Someone on our allotments was giving plants away so I had one. It produced one fruit.

I want to make something interesting with it, any ideas please?
