Re white fly, fellow allotmenteers on my site are plagued too. One has a cordon of string on canes around his sprouts to which he has attached sticky wide parcel tape along the string. He regularly shakes the plants and any flies fly onto the tape! Says the sprouts are not badly affected and they looked solid, well formed.
A slow week on my plot. Clearing an area for compost bins. Will start with posts and wire frame until I can get more solid sides. Use one for leaves for now (plenty of those about!)
Dug trench and planted gooseberry bushes. Reading with interest about required soil for blueberry bushes, mixed recommendations on that thread, so will keep in large pots for now.
This weeks aim is for more ground to be dug, the compost bins in place and decision as to where to have cutting beds.
All looking good
