Courgette's

Posted: 25/06/2013 at 09:37

I have planted out some courgette's in a raised bed and now find that the leaves are slowely being eaten one at a time on each plant. I can't see any snail trails or sign of any other bugs. Can any one advise ? It also appears that my pepper plant is also being attacked. Not sure if it is the same thing but two lupins planted next to each other have been affected in a similar way , one is fine the other has been eaten away completely. As you can probably tell I am a complete novice.

Thanks so much. I am very enthusiastic but it all seems to be so much more involved than I thought.I am sure you will all get fed up with seeing my name pop up all the time! Belive it or not I am a florist, you would think my knowledge would be greater.

Thanks Nutcutlet, I will invest in some trellis then and secure it well.

Please bare with me as I am new to this gardening stuff ! My garden gets sun in different areas throughout the day as I have a huge Ash tree blocking out light. The garden faces S/E and the Clematis is on the fence that only gets dappled light in the late afternoon.

Hi, Thanks for your speedy reply. The fence is made of basic old fence panels but nothing really for them to attach to. Allready I ve had a few tendrels break off.

I have planted 2 clematis montana plants roughly 7ft apart to cover an old bare fence. As a novice my question is how do I secure and train them over the fence, also after reading a little about them and their prolific growth have I planted them too close together ?

Thanks for the advice,think I will hold on to them.. Do you have any advice as to what else I could sow now or is it a lost cause this year ? Perhaps I will buy some plants ...

I recently picked up a complementary pack of chillie seeds from a Mexican Restaurant. Is it still possible to sow them or have I missed the boat ? I have a small propagator but it isnt heated. Obviously I am new to this ....

I have been given 3 magnolia plants very small but still alive! as a new gardener I am at a loss as what to do with them so I have planted them in pots. What do I need to do to them to encourage growth ? also what is the best position for them.
