Hi has anyone in the Bristol area ever bought a bulk order of compost.? I am always making trips to the garden centre to buy bags . I'm sure there must be a cheaper way but I have nowhere for a loose delivery but could store bags,.

Can anyone suggest why my young Tomato plants have brownish spots on lower leaves? The actual plant is looking healthy enough.

My nectarine growing in a pot has had a great deal of flowers but I noticed now some leaves are twisted and tinged red. Could this be a pest of some sort?

hi Jason, Its exciting being new to gardening, I have grown all my tomatoes from seed this year and they are nearly ready for putting into pots or grow bags.  It is actually sunny here this morning in Bristol England which is a pleasant change as our spring is late in coming this year. what is your weather like in the big apple !!! Enjoy your little patch of heaven like me.
