courgettes

Posted: 10/03/2012 at 23:28
I have had exactly the same problem, year after year. I have grown a few different varieties, always in containers. Plenty of room, only one plant per container, regular watering, tomato feed once a week, plenty of sunlight. They start off really healthily, produce lots of flowers. But the courgette production is accompanied by a subtle silver veining on the leaves. Pretty soon the leaves turn completely silver and brittle, courgette production stops and the plants end up in the bin. This year I will try again, having chosen a variety resistant to "powdery mildew" which is what I have guessed the problem to be. I'd love this to be confirmed though...

Slender speedwell nightmare

My lawn is absolutely full of slender speedwell. Domestic lawn weedkiller has no effect whatsoever and the thought of hand weeding it all out fills me with fear and dread. Is there any solution other than to dig the lawn up and returf? As my neighbour says, "at least it's green"!
