Agralan M731 Plum Fruit Moth Refill
Agralan M731 Plum Fruit Moth Refill
Price: £5.27

1.0 out of 5 stars Agralan Plum Moth Traps and Inserts Fail to Deliver., 8 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product failed to eliminate plum moth damage even though I have caught over two hundred moths in two traps on one plum tree with new inserts being purchased at the beginning of July and the traps (with sticky inserts) being set up at the beginning of June. Although my previous years' losses were 100%, this year the loss was only reduced to 70%. I sprayed the tree with Resolva about four times as recommended by Agralan but this clearly had little effect. I shall try the product again next year but if no better result is achieved I shall just collect the plums thereafter and throw them in the dustbin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bruckner Symphony No 9 with Finale, 12 Nov. 2010
The great Austrian composer, Anton Bruckner, died having nearly completed the fourth movement (the Finale)of this symphony and performed and recorded versions of the 9th do not usually include this movement.Souvenir hunters pilfered sheets of its score from his lodging in Vienna and these may still exist somewhere. The booklet accompanying the CD states that this version of the Finale uses "newly discovered sources" although disappointingly,it does not specify whether these include some of the pilfered score. I cannot comment on the quality of the performance as I am not a music critic. It contains a magnificent chorale and,as other listeners may agree, at the very end what sounds to me like a quotation from the opening of the 8th Symphony. At the beginning Bruckner transforms a rather over robust first subject into an elegaic and delicate song-like melody, a trick he is good at.For Bruckner lovers this disc is worth having although be warned: the Finale is still a work in progress!

3.0 out of 5 stars Six Old English Chronicles Etc., 10 Nov. 2010
I was a little disappointed with this purchase as I bought it for the sake of reading Asser's Life of Alfred. However, Asser did not tell me a lot about what I was hoping to learn about Alfred and spends too much space reiterating the contents of the Old English Chronicle. Followers of the Merlin Saga on BBC 1 will find Geoffrey of Monmouth's History a useful handbook although much cheaper versions are available.There is an interesting Appendix, possibly supplied by Giles himself, detailing the course of Roman roads in England. Very much a publication for the specialist in Post-Roman English History.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bede : Ecclesiastical History of the English People., 26 Mar. 2010
This book is of interest to those , like myself, who wish to learn about how the foundations of our great nation were established before the Norman Conquest and possibly to Anglicans who wish to learn about the origins of their Church. Bede's piety and devotion to his religion shine through. However, what makes the book uputdownable by myself is the occasional anecdote illuminating the struggles and adversity faced by the earliest English folk such as the suicide pacts made in Sussex in the face of dearth.This is a fascinating read.
