Which netting /mesh for growing brassicas?

Posted: 04/07/2014 at 09:21

I'm growing a few plants of PSB as I did last year - I found last year that regular inspection was enough to keep them caterpillar free rather than spending money on the mesh - wish me luck!

Hello Sue   Enjoying your travels 

A Cornish friend went to The Tempest at Minack last night and was disappointed in the production - how was it for you?

Morning Archie, morning Lily - have I said good morning to Bekkie?  Morning Bekkie 

Haven't seen Fairy since 29th June - I imagine she's busy in her garden - virtually 24 hours of daylight up there at the moment

Fertilisers designed for tomatoes will contain the nutrients that encourage flowering and fruiting so can be used on plants that you want to flower shortly.

It's not a good idea to use them on young plants that are still in early growth, or on foliage plants or leafy vegetables. 

Talkback: Mullein moth

They'll be pupating underground - think it'll take quite a while before they appear as moths, according to Wiki it can take up to 5 years, but I don't know how reliable that is

Woody, that's sad ... but I suppose even hedgehogs have to die sometimes - I once found a dead one in the gardens at work - on closer inspection it looked as if a baby had got stuck in the birth canal - I suppose it happens

Morning KEF   Maybe your hedgehog is busy with 'maternal' things and not wandering quite so far at nights at the moment?

Good luck with the power bill - I think I'm reasonably intelligent (ran two businesses, have an MA etc) and I can't make head or tail of 'em 

HELLO FORKERS!

Oooh yes - Clari....

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
