Do pigeons eat all the cherries before they're ripe.
No, ah a few little nice birds have a nibble as you said but most come out beautifully. And there are many cherries on both trees.
They are delicious sweet cherries, I can't eat the sour cherries, way too sour for me.
The Romans actually deliberately caught birds for food using the Mountain Ash tree (Sorbus aucuparia). Aucuparia actually means bird catcher.
i love it, i want to know this type stuff too, it gives a much better appreciation of it all, a historic perspective.
Remember to pick off the underdeveloped apples at the end of the season
I will do, thanks.
The tree will produce more fruit if you do this.
One of the problems is that the two apple trees produce too many big juicy apples, making it too heavy.
I had to tie it to another tree last year to keep it up, i will cut the branches this year to stop it from toppling over.
i bought some tree antiseptic, so the wounds don't go septic.
The local kids help and i give it to people to make apple jam, yum yum!.
I left the end of the garden completely wild for the fairies (What i understand to be wild life :), it used to be chest high grass, now it is nettles.
An old peach
Sorry the photo doesn't show it well enough.
It is a very young, very tall peach tree, a few years away from having fruit.
I need to clip it down and move it into the sun, said someone else and it makes sence.
Remove a load of bunches so that the others can grow more instead.
Interesting, this is the first time this off cut will (hopefully) produce grapes, but the rest of it was growing rapidly.
I have put up a Trellis for it to grow up, crawling plants need something to grow on, right?.
Well it looks a lot happier, even since yesterday.
rose family (roses, apples, pears, plums, peaches)
Roses are linked to them? wow, How come the rest produce fruit?.
Cutting back for most deciduous plants should be done in the winter.
what about evergreen trees?. I have to cut about 40 thin, too tall, evergreen trees, that's why I bought the tree antiseptic.
For fruit trees, cutting too much can result in a year without flowers or fruit.
Ah, I need to cut one of the apple trees, it is way too heavy when the apples are ripe.
What do you suggest?, I was thinking of putting in a crutch but to be careful not to cut into it.
Thank you very much Osiol, i will add to this and try to describe conditions a bit better. great!.
pawian, are you growing oranges? in Poland? how do they taste?.
