What are my sunflower leaves telling me?

Posted: 18/06/2014 at 07:03

Is that fertiliser on the compost of the sweetcorn?  If so, that looks to be much too much!  Scrape most of it away and then give them a really good watering.  

Sweetcorn needs a lot of water and the compost looks very dry. 

I would fill those pots right up to the top, let it drain away and then do it again.  

I think the sunflowers are thirsty too and from what I can see again, if that's fertiliser remove it.  

As for the fly, I've had some similar ones on my roses - not sure what they are but possibly one of the parasitic ones whose larvae eat various pests.  I've left mine well alone 

HELLO FORKERS!

Look for the book Drink your own Garden by Judith Glover - available on Amazon last time I looked - the simplest and clearest book about home wine making that there is.
