worst gardening old wives tales

Posted: 23/03/2014 at 15:35

Apart from the old wives tale that if you pick dandelions you will wet the bed, what is the worst old wives tale or piece of mis-information you have heard of about plants and gardens?

gardenj, yes, I am amazed by the response, but I shouldn't be really as the forumatti are good people. There was a little bit of negativity at the beginning but most of us kept being relentlessly positive and it seems to have worked

I'm growing 'extra' to sell to friends and at my front gate unless I hear that I should take plants down to Somerset.

Will pm you

Ph2, I think that a great deal of 'new gardeners' are basically fairly practical, intelligent, (lovely) people; those who are basically impractical are always going to struggle a bit. And that is through no fault of their own; some people are simply born that way. ...and it's great to get carried away with gardening
