Reply to rosie plum: I'm sorry you're not able to access the iPlayer. Although, there's nothing we can do about that, unfortunately, I hope you find the videos on this site useful.

Reply to estherbunny: the site-wide search facility at the top of every page will also return links to forum posts, as well as projects, videos, blogs and plant profiles. You can view the search results for red spider mite here:

Search results for 'red spider mite'

You can filter the result further by content type if you wish. I hope this helps.

Update for puppykash. I've had the following response from Tamsin on the magazine team, who works on the Design Made Easy series with Joe, which I hope will please you:

"Thank so much for your comments. It’s really helpful to receive feedback on our features, especially when we launch a new series. Joe’s next feature in the design series, which will be in the May issue, is on L-shaped and Wide & shallow gardens, so hopefully there will be some tips that’ll help you in your garden.

In June, we’ll be looking at a  tiny courtyard garden and an irregular shaped garden.

Thank you, also, for your comments on hard landscaping and front gardens. As you say, these are common problems. I’ll try and work in ways to tackle these in future issues."

Hello puppykash, many thanks for taking the sharing your wishlist. I’ve passed your comments on to the magazine team, who produce the design series with Joe.

Regarding your other point about gardening on a budget, or with limited time, we’re currently working on ‘tagging’ all of our site content. This will enable us to pull all content on a given topic into one page. For example, we’ve tagged projects by how long they takes, so we’ll easily be able to create a page of ’30 minute projects’ or ‘afternoon projects’, which would be ideal for weekend gardeners. We’re hoping to implement the tagging on the site in the next couple of months, so do watch this space.

Gardening on a budget is very much in our minds at the moment. You might have noticed the ‘Get thrifty’ series in the magazine – we’re also inviting readers to submit their money-saving tips here on the forum.

Best wishes,

Your wishlist

Hello again, Anniseed. Point taken re: the seed trials. I think you're right that we should find other ways to involve visitors in the site. One of the best ways of sharing the growing process with others is through images. We are planning the addition of user image galleries later in the year, so this would be one way to check how everyone is getting on with the sweet pea and tomato seeds.

Regarding advice on raising plants from seed, we actually have a whole project section, including videos, on this subject already. Some of the advice is plant specific, e.g. grow tomatoes from seed, while some is more general e.g. sowing seeds indoors, and will apply to a broad range of plants. Please find some links below, that you might find useful:

Seeds and bulbs project section (includes lots of crop-specific projects and videos)

Greenhouse section

Plant propagation projects

Sowing seeds indoors

Sowing seeds outdoors

Blogs on sowing seeds

I hope this helps!
