Amazed to be finding so many caterpillars on my sprouts. This is November, not the usual time for them, in the spring.

Carrot bed

So very successful with using the previous years runner bean compost as base for carrot bed, topped with JI no 2 compost.

What peas are the best

Best variety? Hurst Greenshaft, I would say, without a doubt. Does anyone know of a Mangetout variety that is less than 6ft tall?

Has anyone managed to keep this oh such a superb plant through recent winters?. It appears to be quite hardy if planted in the spring, so as to allow the roots to penetrate deep. I haven't seen it awhile!

What's wrong with my onions

Posted: 22/07/2014 at 15:11

I feel pretty sure Yorkshiremans problem is the long dry spell. Onions are shallow rooting and have suffered this year. My large onion bed have all wilted in quite a different way to the natural autumn gradual  ripening we are used to. They look in a sad state.

Bees in my compost

Bee hives, all our bees are in bee hives, on combs, which are cells in wax.

Honey bees do not make nests. Guess they are bumble bees, they most likely will raise their young, as birds do , then leave.

Morning glory seedlings dying

I had the same problem in a warm kitchen. Lost count of the numbers I have germinated only for them to die. Mystery deepens.

Multi purpose compost was Evergreen, fidgetbones. Still a mystery to me. Thank you both.

In previous years I have been so taken with this variety, which provides us with daytime flowers rather than the more usual early morning types. This spring I soaked the seeds as I always have done, sowed them in multi purpose compost, kept them in warm kitchen, germination fine, but within three days or so  they give up and die. I am mystified.
