I grew my first veg last year & was so inspired by the results & encouraging comments from my elderly French neighbours (who garden from birth to death), that I tripled the size of my veg patch for this year. I lost most of my lovely pink fir apple crop & all my tomatoes to blight, & the courgettes have been poor. I understand that the unusual weather has been to blame for these occurances, but can anyone please help with another problem I have? .
I was given a raspberry cane & a blackcurrant bush last year & planted them next to each other against a corrugated iron shed where they've grown big & bushy, but produced no fruit whatsoever. They receive full sun for the first half of the day and shade the second half. What should I do? Thanking you in anticipation.
Re Mare's Tail - I had lots of this growing - here's how I got rid of it:
Dig up as much as you can and any remaining that are not in close proximity to plants you want to keep - put 35ml to 5l of Weedol RootKill Plus.
Then - plant snowball turnips - the turnips excrete into the soil a suppressor for the mare's tail.
This year I've had a few mare's tail heads poke thorugh and that's it - more turnips at the ready!!!
