Thursday 11 April 2013: Hope
So so day at work. Got some stuff done but never quite as much as one would hope. Before dinner I nipped outside into the garden to see if there was anything nice to blip. Today's blip is a bud on our Quince bush (Cydonia oblonga), it is its second spring and we're hoping it will be able to grow well this year. Last year was okay but it got some form of quince blight (caused by Diplocarpon mespili apparently) so I'm hoping with good pruning and removal of any infected material it may be okay this year - if not I'll spray it with fungicide...!
