Xhose collapsible hosepipe bursting

Posted: 23/06/2015 at 10:52

Thanks for the info. Happened when I was watering a neighbour's garden during their holiday - have to give them the bad news when they get back today! Am certain I didn't do anything wrong with it, had handled it with kid gloves, so am glad to have it confirmed not my fault. Bad news is, it is so easy to use, we bought one a few days ago....

How long had you had the hose?

Has anyone had experience of an Xhose bursting? The hose itself, not the connectors or attachments.

Thanks everyone. I will still grow them next year with the other 15 varieties - ever the optimist! Am becoming a fan of Favorita.

Hi All

We've grown tomato Gardener's Delight for donkey's years. Last 2 years fruits have been a bit bigger, texture more mushy, taste not as good. Not doing anything different with watering, feeding etc. Any ideas?

metal plant supports

Posted: 30/05/2013 at 11:14

Does anyone have tips on neat storage of metal plant supports? The ones in the shape of a semicircle supported by two verticals. I have tried tying them by their tops with the verticals in a large plant pot but selecting them is worse than sorting paperclips - they just tangle. 

pansy leaf brown spot on winter flowering violas

Posted: 11/04/2013 at 18:28

We used to grow winter flowering violas in a raised bed. They were attacked by pansy leaf brown spot the year before last.We chanced them again last winter but it was a disaster. We didn't plant them this year.

Does anyone have any experience of how many seasons to wait before trying again? Would changing the top layer of soil help? Or am I on a hiding to nothing?

Any help appreciated.
