Chad, thank you for the extra information, fruit looks a little on the small side but if it has a nice flavour that's good enough for me. It just means I shall have to eat a lot more of them. :lol: icon_thumright

I have a small 'Ice Crystal' that I am expecting great things from in the future! Although bought for its foliage, does any one know if it fruits well?

I am at a complete loss people look in but do not post.

On another subject I had a message from Kata on another forum asking to be remembered to every one on HT. She is unable to do much gardening any more due to rheumatism. She now has a gardener! Advancing age catches up with us all. icon_salut

Conservatory replacement causing overwintering issues

Dave your job looks as if it is coming along well and hopefully you will be in the dry soon. Interesting that you decided to go for a fiberglass roof as did I. I did speak to Karl before I started mine so I know he is not that keen on fiberglass as he has had to replace some failed fiberglass rooves...

However I did go as far as looking for a nursery to buy some from as there was none in Wales. I found a nursery on the Shropshire side of O...

I think they used it as an excuse because it was to much trouble for them. Charlie, have you never heard of a rain coat especially in ...
