I couldn't post yesterday. I changed it to basic editor, but I've lost the tool bar, so I cant show you my lovely banana plant.

I just opened the curtains to find it horrible and grey. Where is my heatwave.?
I was promised one by the weatherman. Is this what I pay my licence fee for.?
I've got people coming round for afternoon tea in the garden. Well all need woolly jumpers and brollies.

Save in dry paper envelopes to sow next May. If you sow now, its a bit late to get decent size plants for next spring flowering.

You will need deep pots filled with gritty free draining compost.  Try and get them in the ground before the roots fill the pots.

Acid soil needed. More than one variety for cross pollination. Nets to stop birds eating them before you do.

It doesnt need to be netted either. Its wind pollinated, so let the breezes get at it.

Yellow leafs

Posted: 30/07/2015 at 15:21

The bottom leaves yellow as the plant ages.cut them off to allow fruit to ripen. Keep feeding with a tomato fertiliser. If all the leaves yellow, give a teaspoon of epsom salts per plant and water in well.

Out during the day usually means a mother looking for food for cubs.  I started feeding mine(tin of dog food or bakers meaty chunks) at that point. We had cubs playing in the garden for quite a few years. My neighbours kids loved them.Some people dont and get upset by them. We thought they were very special, I had one cub that would take food from my hand.
