White fly

Posted: 02/10/2013 at 18:36

I have had them in salted water all afternoon, they are still hanging on in there .

Iv rinsed it off and put them back in (clean) salted water. It can spend a night in the fridge and i'll look at it tomorrow, hopefully it will be bug free. 

Thank you for your comments though .

I have just picked some broccoli and started to prepare it for dinner just to discover its covered in white fly (tightly packed into the small stems). I have tried washing it but they are not moving can anyone suggest how i can get them out. 

I dont fancy eating the flies and i dont want to throw it away.

Do you know when they are ripe for eating?

Does the green lantern case go brown then there ready?

I have grown Physalis little lanterns for the first time this year. They are very healthy and have fruit on but they have spread out rather than go up e.g. like tomato plants. I have Googled them and the pictures show the plants to be more upright.

Has anyone else grown them? Im in need of some advice .

I grew pink fir apple potatoes last year, when i cleared out the shed last week i found some potatoes which had been left in the tub i put them in for storage (to use as and when i needed them).

They have started to sprut would these be ok to plant again?

Lol, yea i thought the were roots, just hoped a least one was a stem .   Its growing a new leaf aswell so maybe it will flower soon.

 I was given an orchid (it wasnt in flower). I don't know if the 3 little buds are roots or new stems starting. Any advice happily received.

(sorry about the rubbish pictures)

T&M send out there magazines well in advance, i use mine to make my mind up of what im going to grow. You dont have to order straight away you have around 3 months, which for me gives plenty of time to order and recieve without being early or late.

In my opinion its not T&M problem.
