Rockeries are usually a mix of soil/compost and lots of grit making it very free draining. Are you sure the previous owner hasn't cemented the rocks in? You never know!

When do I harvest Scarlet curly kale

Posted: 23/06/2014 at 13:41

I've just bought seeds for scarlet kale, they are advertised as being grown like cut and come again leaves rather than singular large plants. Just snip off individual leaves as you want them, not too much off one plant at once

You can render it and paint it a pretty colour, then put up a trellis and grow climbers

Dutch Iris

'Dutch' Iris are best just squeezed in around other plants rather than planted on their own. Plant the bulbs in autumn you only need a narrow hole to put them in

Lower leaves on tomatoes going yellow

Hi Sue

I'm glad you listed the names of your tomato plants as I have now learned that there is a tomato called Galina, which is from Siberia. Where did you get your seeds for it from? I have a friend at work who is a keen gardener, she is called Galina and is from Russia so I'd love to grow it for her next year.

I had one just like that, I dug it out. There is supposed to be a dwarf mock orange, I don't know its name. There are lots of Philadelphus flowering at the moment, they are all huge shrubs!

Norwegian Flax flowering for the first time

They aren't really grown for their flowers as they aren't much to look at, more for the foliage.

I always thought the plants had to be a decent size to flower but as the ones at work which aren't very big are flowering, I think it is as Edd says the winter has affected them. I never fed mine and as you've had yours for 10 years I wouldn't do anything different.

I thought they were New Zealand Flax i.e. Phormium
