Can I extend the height of this espalier apple tree?

Question from Malvern David

In forum: Edible gardening

Hello
I bought this Tydeman's Late Orange apple tree as an four tier espalier a few years back. I'd like to get it to go higher up the wall I have it against but I'm not sure how to go about it (or whether its possible). Can I train it to have more tiers?

Any advice on this would be gratefully received.

I've grown this rose for 1 year. This is a vigorous, aesthetic looking rose bush with large crimson blooms with a high centre. But it is described as having a 'good, fruity fragrance' when in fact it has none. At least I haven't been able to detect any scent, nor has any other person to whom I've shown this rose.

Ruby Wedding rose scent

Comment from Paul Benson

In forum: Rosa 'Ruby Wedding'

Ruby Wedding rose has no scent or a very slight one. Certainly not a 'deep and heavy' fragrance as described here. But the blooms are a beautiful, full multi-petalled ruby red.

Foxtail Lily - 1 bulb = 1 flower?

Question from Eleanor Davis

In forum: General

If I buy a bulb (they seem to be around £6 each) will it grow just one spire of flower?

I understand they last quite a while but I'm thinking if it's just a single spire each year that would be pretty expensive to get a good look going.
