Should do, but it survived treatment in our last house. We moved!

Possibly Pratia pedunculata.

Once the Cabbage roots flies are in your growing area then they tend to attack every year there after.

Sad, but all you can do is interrupt the cycle, either by killing the grubs,or preventing the flies from laying their eggs or not growing Brassicas for a few years.

Put it somewhere warm and stop watering it.

Bit late once they have started on them. Cabbage root flies that is. What you need to do in future is to put the pads down round the plant when you put it in. These are circles of roofing felt with a slit to a hole in the centre. They stop the fly laying its eggs on the plant stem.

The chemical treatment makes the plants inedible to my way of thinking.

Which one is it? Some of the taller types do tend to flop without staking. Totally Tangerine and Blazing Sunset both do it.

What on earth is this ??

Being persecuted these days as it is mistaken for Lily beetle. Shame, it is one of the good guys.

All our ,well both, our Hydrangea macrophylla types are pink despite the presence of nails.

Rusty nails - truth or myth

No idea, but if you want a soil full of rusty nails then come and dig in our garden. We find them every time we cultivate, mostly hand made ones from pre-industrial nail making days. You can tell as they are triangular rather than round.

Strange growth on allium

Posted: 10/06/2015 at 09:00

When the seed pods begin to split and show small black seeds is the time to collect them. Sow straight away for best results.

In the wild, these Allium seed heads detach from the plant and roll across the steppes shedding their seeds as they go.
