Green Gage

Posted: 21/05/2012 at 13:18

I recently bought a green gage from a tree supplier, its potted up and seemed perfectly happy (with new leaves and plenty flowers)...until a week ago I noticed some of the leaves and flowers have gone from the middle of the branches.

Looking at it, it resemmbles a goosegog when sawfly have eaten all the leaves.

I have looked at it and can't really see anything other that the leaves curling under on themselves, then they drop off. I have watered as instructed and I have now started to mist it wilh water, which seems to have slowed down the process.

Any ideas of what might be causing the problem.

I have just bought a green gage though, as I stole some fruit from a tree nearby and they were really good, very tasty.

I grew celeraic, really easy to germainate, grows easily in plenty muck......however they were just tops no root developed (as in the bit you eat), what a disappointment. I composted them instead so not alll wasted effort.

Talkback: How to grow tomatoes in a greenhouse

Posted: 16/04/2012 at 13:28

I place 2 grow bags on top of one and another and make holes in the top bag so the toms can be planted Before planting the seedlings, using a dibber I punch through the base of the top bag into the one underneath (room for the roots to grow through). I find my toms dont split then as I cannot water the same time every day. I also remove my leaves so that there is more air circulation but only because my plants are tightly packed into the greenhouse. I tried growing up strings last year, and found it really easy, so I will be doing the same this year for both toms and cucumbers.

Pound shop plants- any success stories?

I bought a tayberry some 4 years ago from one of the cheaper supermarkets for 99p. I planted it and now it gives me a wealth of fruit every year. Just cos some plants cost more doesnt always mean they are of higher quality or will perform any different. Just some common nouse needs to be applied when buying.
