Brussell Sprouts

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 16:20

Hi,

I have grown some brussell sprouts from seed, and they have grown really well, however they have now started to die! I kept them in the greenhouse, but I thought the sun might be scorching them so moved them to a cooler cold frame, but they have continued to die.

Any ideas what is wrong with them?

Hi, Having watched an episode of gw last year where they looked at the national collection of echinacea, i went out and bought two plants, they died down over winter and are now starting to come back up, however, something is shredding the leaves, i have put slug pellets down so its not slugs! Any ideas?

Hi, My mother had some flowers and i took cuttings from her pinks in the bunch. thry have rooted in the pit but i am worried that if i put them put they will die if we have a frost? Are they hardy?

Hi, me again, I'm becoming a regular on here asking for advice.... i have sown some lemon grass seeds that have germinated and are little plants now. I wondered - can i just pot them up individually or do i need to grow them on before putting in their final big pots? Any advice would be very gratefully recieved!

Hi, I have grown some sprouts from seed ehich are growing very well on my windowsill, the problem is i really need the space they are taking up. I was thinking of putting them in my unheated greenhouse but i don't know if a frost would finish them off? Any thoughts?

onions from seed

That's great, thank you so much for your advice. I will take them to my allotment and put them in the greenhouse tomorrow - the greenhouse is generally frost free, I've had a citrus plant in there for the whole winter and its growing away ok.

Thank you again.
