Hello everyone

I finally picked up a new blackcurrant having found out last year my blackcurrant was actually a loganberry  :BangHead:

So i have a second large pot to fill and again filled with spent potato compost and the blackcurrant anything else i need to consider? Will be top dressing with gravel.

The plant will be put behind my greenhouse which is at the corner of my garden with a 3-4ft gab from fence to greenhouse so it will just fit.

The fence i am going to be training it against is A) not mine and B) rotten so unlikly to make it though the winter (will be training in spring if the fence makes it. But i am thinking i will on my side put some wire and train the plant on that so that if the fence goes in future the plant should be ok is this sound thinking?

Any other fruiting plants (shrub) that i could put in the same pot?

Hi All,

A friend has offered me a Wallnut tree seedling which has popped up under a productive tree in his garden. I have said yes but my plan was to stick this into a very large pot behind the 3 apple trees and i am now worried it will be a little to shady for it there so i am going to find somewhere else to put the pot. I am going to use the spent potato compost after this year into the pot (3ft wide) anything else that you guys can think off before i start clearing space and getting the pot ready.

Thanks Cam

So I was quite pleasantly surprised that my plot wasnít completely overrun with weeds as I havenít been up there for a while because of the rain. However just before coming away I looked at my runner beans and they have been eaten big time! It looks more like a bird has eaten and bitten off lots of each bean all the way over. It doesnít look like slug damage.

Does this sound right? More importantly do I need to cover my runners? I feel outraged - Ive never had to cover them before!! Or are there any good ideas for frightening birds away?
