Hello

 

Does anybody know of a seed supplier that has Broccolini seed in stock, apparently it is a cross between Broccoli and Chinese Chard and is delicious.

What colour are the flowers? if yellow it is black medic which is easily removed by tracing the runners back to the stem and then using a knife to cut off under the surface

Comfrey

I chop the leaves and stems into small pieces and as Dave said put them into a container of water  and stir daily, when the bubbles stop I use at the ratio of 1 part comfrey to 10 parts water.

I leave the material in the water and top up with more plant and water as required

Sounds like you may have dirt in the carburetor main jet. so the carb will have to be completely stripped and cleaned and also the fuel tank will need to be flushed out as this is the source of dirt in the carb

Hello

Last year i bought two Fritillaria  Imperialis at a garden show, they were both in flower when purchased, I planted them as instructed by the seller this year both bulbs have put out two shoots approx two foot six inches high but neither has flowered.

Has anybody had similar problems or can give advice to make them flower next year.

Thanks
