  1. Try vitis cognetiae. Used to grow in through my first floor windows
  2. Do not buy this saw - its stolen

    great detective work!
  3. Thinking of selling up, any advice?

    Its very hard to say without literally doing it. Essentially its probably the value of the kit and a bit of good will which would arbitrarily be based on turnover. If I was starting up over again I would buy a business, take on the debt and hit the ground running. I was surprised when a local guy to me sold up a good business and had no takers.
  4. Relaxing with a drinkiepoos

    It's Friday, has to be done, provided I've thought to book in a ''Friday job''. Get grief when I dont
  5. Definitely affects our area. I got some chestnut trees of my own planted about 1/2 a mile from the boundary!!
  6. Tree Planting Stake Height

    Somewhere between the two above imo. Too low and the root rock is too great and too high the stem doesn't learn strength. Depends a bit on the elasticity of the material used for the slings and whether you use 2 or 3 stakes. A bit of judgement is always required.
  7. 2wd pick ups

    I'd go for the 4wd version. We run two. I wouldn't be without them but then devon isn't exactly flat. I use the 4wd low range every day
  8. Fungus identification please?

    Yep agree with Sloth
  9. Shrub growing in hedgerow

    Cotoneaster. Found a few in North devon hedges. Don't think it's native. Probably arrived in birdy poopoo
  10. Moral dilemma and a way to say sorry

    I think you are doing the best you can and sound like you are matching diplomacy with integrity. Go easy on yourself eh! In a couple of weeks youll be able to look back and chuckle
  11. This is my Arborist Van

    Great use of space. There's enough space for the German Shepherd it needs too
  12. tree id help

    Defo. Big ones can be really impressive
  13. Identification please

    Defo conny 4. Send it back!!
  14. Legal Definition of a 'Nesting Bird'

    In a nutty shell that's how I had it. But some species carry on with second and third broods. I think that is what gary was talking about
  15. Show us your website!

    I gotta hunch you're right. Something of an expert you sound Steve. You don't.......?!
