garlic is a good one ,made by putting a clove into a bottle of water and leave for a day before use. It helps but you need other protection as well or soapy water is another,its on going battle.

they like a lot of sun and water plus manure and don't pull the stalks to soon. you could force them by covering with a pot (big).

box blight smells  and the leaves turn blackish and the bush looks really sad.

Spring 2013 vs Spring 2014

next season

I have to say I have found a few bargains of late and the latest is 50 daffs (mixed) for 99p.Well you might think that is a little early but you can either keep them or plant them for next year. So madly I have bought another 4  bags so I hope I have enough space. I also thought Verne complete compost for seeds e.t.c. good value and good quality at £3 for 50 litres, I buy this as I run out and never enough compost from home made . Anyway that made my weekend in the rain better!

Please help a novice gardener

of course ,if you dig it out with plenty of earth and do not damage the roots .Dig a hole deep enough to take it with a bit of compost and place bush in and fill in  and tread earth down and water daily for a year so as it can take root. It looks healthy enough .
