It would be most helpful if your site could help coping with the various climate zones. Here in Argyll we still have winter conditions.

I have left mine on a window sill, but there is some kind of grey fur around some of the a first time grower i am guessing this isn't right, but could do with some advice.

I got mine from R H S wisley.the early potatoes were from thomson & morgan 2kg sacks problem was that you got a few large ones and tiddly ones, not even half a tray, far from happy.

Just to take up the bee comment, I saw my first bee of the year about four weeks ago! So glad we have a Prunus autumnalis for it to feed on.

Talkback: Wasp alert

Posted: 01/01/2007 at 00:00
We had a prolific amount of newly emerged queen wasps last year. So much so that it was a worry, to say the least. We keep honey bees and wasps have been known to be a pest, to the bees and their hives, in one way and another. However, being aware that they are extremely efficient hunters of garden pests we just kept an eye on the situation and made ourselves aware of any wasp bikes we could find. Later on in the season, when the wasps start becoming a nuisance, and become aggressive, we tend to become less complacent then and actively seek them out - or should I say they actively seek us out? I am a keen organic gardener and try to plant for a good ecosystem but even the wasps have their day.

They have grown and they look lovely and healthy but there are no signs of fruit....HELP!What should I do ditch them and start again or hope they fruit next year??

Talkback: Gardening in the rain

Don't let it get you all down so much! Plan your gardens for the spring and summer. Get the seed catalogues out and save yourself some money buy growing your own plants. Work out your colours for pots and hanging baskets rather than going in 'blind' to the GC in May/June. Weed your borders, its easier to do in the wet. Look through the previous years gardening magazines, you may have not read them properly when there was so much gardening to do, cut out and file the articles you want to keep. Plant trees. Plant roses. Make sure you plant winter flowering plants to entice you outside. There is gardening to be done, you may have to do it with more layers of clothing on but you will so pleased you made the effort.
