Flora is a very experienced horticulturist with a particular interest in fruit and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of how to propagate and develop all manner of fruit trees and bushes. So earlier this year, for a gem, I tapped into this expertise and invited Flora around to prune the rampant vine I have growing along my front fence. Now with a much-reduced plant I awaited the results. On Flora's advice, with heavy heart, I then plucked out many small bunches of grapes as they developed, as she explained that it would enable other bunches to develop to their full potential. Now I have several huge bunches of delicious looking fruit. In another couple of weeks I think they will be fully ripe and just begging to be eaten. I can't wait. Thanks Flora.
