how to rid cabbages of leaf curling infestation

You could try spraying with liquid soap solution, I've used that for aphids.

You pick by hand as you need it. Pick off the top when it looks as though it's growing too much up to make it bushier and stop it growing flowers.

Lovely photos Mrs. G. There is a thread especially for photos of our gardens, but it's disappearing behind the other posts. We need to post on it to keep it up there.

Freshly picked peas

Posted: 13/07/2013 at 16:33

I always blanch them, just a minute or 2 in boiling water then leave them to dry on kitchen towel on a tray and when cool remove kitchen towel, put tray in freezer and bag up when frozen so that peas stay separate. But you didn't ask for all that. Sorry! Being bossy!

Abundant Weed?

It was me who said "Help".

If it is impatiens balfourii, not the dreaded knotweed, they are smaller and quite pretty. But my daughter gave me some and now they are everywhere, but they are easy to pull up. But I wish I'd never had them in the first place.

Pond level dropping.....

Posted: 13/07/2013 at 14:33

My little pond is 2m x 1m and 18ins deep. I top it up with tap water. A pond can lose up to 10cm a week in hot weather. Of course leaving it in containers a couple of days would be better, if you can cope with it.

Hedge Identification Please.

I agree with PaulaH. They grow well near the sea, it's often a little cooler near the sea. Has it been very hot where you are?
