Dragon plant leaves patchy and brown

If it was in the reduced section, it might be that it had been neglected in store - either under or over watered - and in these cases the effects sometimes appear after the event - with tlc it may well recover, but it might get worse before it gets better. 

Good luck.

Fairy - I heard that French journalist - what he said will stay with me a long time - as you say, so humbling.

  I spoke too soon - the heavens have just opened and it's too wet underfoot to go onto the veg patch -  but the next fine day will be Broad Bean Sowing Day.

I remember Aberfan so clearly - my cousins lived nearby and my aunt was a teacher at a S Wales village school.  Absolutely horrendous

Not a lot can be planted at this time of year, but now is the perfect time to sow broad beans variety Aquadulce 'Claudia', to overwinter and provide an earlier crop than spring sown seeds. I shall be sowing mine today.
