californian poppy spotting

Posted: 21/06/2014 at 11:24

I am having trouble spotting/thinning m poppy seedlings.


Any idea's what/where they might be?

 I'm think the larger seedlings are Purple deadnettle. Maybe they are the grass like threads hiding in there.

should i be using up the rest of mine then still growing strongly in my garden?

Hi all,

I have been growing my leeks outside for a while and they are now around 30cm tall.

I have read that I should be planting them deeper to blanch up?

Should I pull them up and re-plant deeper or leave them alone?

My mature rose is covered with black spot. Treatment says to remove all the infected leaves. Problem with that is that they all have some on!

Should I remove every single leaf?

My first year in the vegetable garden

Posted: 09/05/2014 at 09:30

Well its the first spring in my new house and I have got the veg garden sorted out.


In the foreground are my potatoes, garlic and some rhubarb.

Next bed has more potatoes (yet to spout), beets and some space. Beyond that sunflowers, sweat peas and lettuce.

left has beans, some in some still in greenhouse, brussels, peas, radish, and parsnips.

At the back is my Raspberry patch and far left back black and red currants.

Still woking out out to net the raspberry patch as its quite large. I managed to net the peas and currants yesterday but a few holes so may lose a few!
