Chatting on the Plot / Re: Cleaning windows...

I find the karcher fluid that you dilute good, but since ours always get filthy before we do them I give them a good wash with washing up liquid and a good rinse off first then spray with the karcher stuff then use the karcher machine on them.

Ouch! Hope you feel better soon, Wighty  :ohmy:#

I remember breaking one just before exams in 4th year senior.  I still had to climb three flights of stairs three times a day for the exams, as they wouldn't leave me in the room between exams  >:(  And I couldn't swim either [not in the room  :lol: ]

Painful indeed.

Fascinating!  You say in your review that they don't mention green manures as such, but they do seem to be deliberately permitting weeds for a similar purpose.

Grow Your Own / Re: Hazelnut care. To prune or not to prune?
« Last post by Yorkie on Today at 20:13 »
Welcome to the site  :D

The article on growing hazelnuts on this forum's main site doesn't specifically mention pruning hazelnuts.

However, the RHS says you can prune an established plant in summer (for heavier cropping) or in winter (to remedy congested growth), and there are instructions on how to do so there:

Take a trip to screwfix and buy yourself a proper unger squeege. You can get a washer too if you're feeling flush, the difference between the trade quality and the cheap stuff is night and day. 

I clean my windows with water and drop of washing up liquid in a 1L spray bottle, quick scrub and with the washer and then drag the water off. Once you have dragging the water down the window sorted it's a quick job. Just don't be tempted to try messing with a cloth after. If they're still in need of a clean or you have a water line repeat the process.

A scrunched up ball of newspaper used as a final polish on dry windows does wonders Mr G  :)

Pork chops as they were reduced and a bargain, plus plot spuds, vegetable spaghetti squash and chard.
