MY NEW ROSE IS LOOKING VERY POORLY

Posted: 13/07/2014 at 11:48

Do you know the name of it?  Some roses only have one flush of blooms, others will flower again later.  Some are prized for their lovely hips  

Should I thin the squash fruitlets?

No! 

Let me tell you about the birds and the bees ......... 

Brassicas raised bed depth

Oh, so they do - never come across that before!

Right -  I think the kale and broccoli will need more depth than that or they'll get rocked by the wind which will cause root damage.  As they get bigger I'd put a cane by each one and tie in so they're as firm as they can be.  You can also top the soil up in the beds with the kale and broccoli in as much as you can as you can get hold of topsoil/compost.  

The cabbages might be ok - what sort of cabbages are they?

Very quick question

What's happened to my tomato?

Everyone finds a way that works for them - I find that understanding the science behind the theory really helps. 

Good luck 

What next for my Honeysuckle Scentsation?

Posted: 13/07/2014 at 11:20

It wouldn't do any harm and might do some good.  I remember a honeysuckle that grew in a garden I walked past on my way to primary school a very long time ago.  The chap (he was known as Dibbler) used to clip it tight to the fence after flowering  and I've never seen such a mass of flowers on a honeysuckle every year.

Oh dear 

Very quick question

FB&B - that's what I use, a small handful, sprinkled in the bottom of the hole and stirred around and sprinkled on the soil/compost to fill the hole.  

HELLO FORKERS!
