Help for flooded gardens

Have been harvesting fruit and veg all day; may have to make gooseberry wine (there is only so much gooseberry fool that one can eat)

Little bump

Dream plant....top of your wish list

Nut, I bet 10p that Dove comes back from Wootons with a truck load of plants.

Monkey puzzle trees My otherwise lovely landlord in London planted one in the front garden, which meant that if I tried to do any weeding near it I was in danger of losing an eye; they are truly vicious.

I have loads of dream plants, sadly not enough space; I need a 'dream' 1/4 of an acre extra.

It is called I think a catch crop when you grow something fast growing around something slow growing; it is normal veg gardening practice.

Broccoli flowering?

Eat as much as you can, leave the plant in situ and it will carry on producing. Try to harvest the heads before they flower. Enjoy

I just foliar fed my plants first time.But..

I used to have a jade plant on my south facing window sill in London; it used to flower in hot summers. I fed it baby bio when I remembered (the bottle lasted 20 years, so probably not very often). When I moved to Norfolk it lived in the conservatory and flowered more often. I finally got fed up with it and put it by the gate with a large sign saying 'free house plant' and it went within a few hours

I've been a good girl

Pleased to have a new garden visitor.
