Lily - don't mind at all, but (wiv me chef's hat on) I have to say cherries & chocolate compliment each other well....which is why I used them.

Whilst reflecting on the amazingness of this forum, I can't quite decide which spontaneous gesture moved me the most.

Was it artjak's quite brilliant 'plants for flooded gardens' thread and the way he/she saw it through....or was it the way the good people of this forum took Mike to their hearts in his hour of need? 

Either way, it's a place I'm proud to be part of.

Bindweed! Can it be battled organically?

Is it me, or does this forum seem (apart from the odd blip) to be going from strength to strength these-days.....  I even overheard it being mentioned (positively) in my local garden centre the other day. Which brings me to the ratio of 'views' each topic has, compared to the replies.....there certainly is a lot of interest out there.

Nah! Must be the time of year.

 

Radish failure - maggots?

Hi again, Meredith.....yes you can plant whatever you want wherever you want, these pests are specific to the plants, not the soil.

Not sure a cloche would be the most appropriate for your carrots at this time of year, probably something like fleece to prevent access to the flies laying their eggs. Your carrots will be particularly vulnerable when you disturb them when thinning out......the carrot fly can detect the smell from long distances.

I would wish to encourage you, not to put you off, but it has to be remembered that everything we plant has a little critter just waiting to spoil the party....but it's great when you get the hang of maximising your chances.

Good luck....here when you need us,
