Hi, I treated myself to a target veg true for this year and filled it with new compost.  OMG I have just found what has been eating my great lettuce plants , the evil VINE WEEVIL !!! How on earth can I get rid of them for next year ?

I have grown some agapanthus from seed in a nice terracotta pot which is about 3 years old.......when will I get flower spikes and is there something I should do to encourage it to flower. It seems a long waiting game !

I have just cleared a space in my veg patch where my broad beans and peas were. I unfortunately have not grown anything from seed to put in the space for winter. can you suggest what I can put in the space to feed me over winter and is it too late to raise anything to grow from seed?

I have lovely broad beans that are bulking up nicely. However when I have picked a few to taste -yes I can never wait -the small beans seem to be a brownish this normal.? Will the mature bean be ok?

Hi, Can anyone suggest why after a couple of trusses my Tom plants look as if they have stopped growing ? The top leaves are all scrunched up!!!

I just seem to love the idea of a tiny seed coming into life (soppy old thing) and thinking ,,,cor I grew that . Thanks I will try the Lupins. Do you think they will do ok in a cold frame or should I give them some heat in the house?

Ah well, back to rain and quite chilly !!!!  Is it too late to propergate Lupins from some seed I had left from last year? Not necessarily to flower this year but could look after them until next spring to put out.


PS I haveDonne the same as always .....sown too many lettuce seeds and now have too many plants and no space left.  Am I the only dork who does that with seeds ?????
