Why did this potato plant die?

Posted: 07/06/2013 at 19:56

Well I dug it up and there were two or three small potatoes that were rotting mush. Found a leatherjacket - could that have been the culprit?

As I wrote this post I was thinking to myself, "I should just dig it up and take a look".

*duh*

Hi there,

Any ideas why the plant is the linked picture seems to have been nuked? All the others are fine. My only idea is that it could have been a mole - their hills are very close to this raised bed. Or could it be something else?

What is this grub?

Hi there,

Any idea what this is - or what it will become? I find a lot when weeding - wondering if I should squash them

Hi there,

I have an issue with a low hedge of box I am trying to grow. I have about 10 plants that have been in for a year now. They are alive but look very yellow. Below is a link to a photo of one (I know I need to weed around it!). You can see how yellow they are by the comparison with the grass. Any advice is greatly appreciated. I was planning on weeding and then mulching and crossing fingers. They are on a horrible clay soil on a slope and get sun most of the day (West facing)

I grew them from plugs from the garden centre. Not impossible though that I mixed something up. Here is a better res picture to see if this helps with identification.

I've dug them all out now and added to the compost

Nope - nothing like that. I know the pigeons had a go and I had to net it - so maybe that was the problem

Large dip in garden

I have something a bit similar but not as big. Luckily for me there is somewhere to drain it too so I've dug in perforated pipe. But its been so wet for so long that even that can't keep up and the turf is in an inch of water.
