I have a area of my garden where there is a lot of moss growing in my lawn. If i pull it up now for baskets in the summer, any idea of how to store it or should i just pull it up in late spring?

Thanks,

Cut out all the old stems so see what happens next year!

Blackcurrent pruning

I'm confused. According to the what to do now above. I should be pruneing my blackcurrants now, however the RHS website advises to prune when dormant in late autumn early winter. Also although I have approximately eight strongest stems I have about 15 smaller stems growing from the base. should I prune most of the smaller stems out leaving only two or three of the stronger ones to replace the original stems when mature.

I have an attack of spider mite on my cucumbers, They are currently 4-5 foot tall and every leaf is affected.

I have sprayed with a bug spray and am misting as often as possible but am i wasting my time?

Can they be saved? Its quite a heavy infestation.

My tomatoes seem to be unaffected.
