HI Hollie Hock, a soap spray is just a small squirt of washing up liquid in to a spray bottle topped up with water. It will rid you of the greenfly and works on black fly too.

A little soap spray will sort the greenfly out, If you want to get rid of them that is.

The best multi purpose compost this year

I've wondered the same as I've noticed quite a few different brands this year have been very poor.

newly planted perennial plugs

I've just started potting mine on for the 2nd time from 2.5 inch pots to 5 inch, they'll stay in these ones until spring next year. I haven't over-wintered any plants before (apart from a chilli my aunt oddly decided to sow in October), but I have a cold frame where they will hopefully be ok during the winter.

There are plenty of places you can cheaply buy a coldframe from, at this time of year  they will probably be on special offer too.

Good luck with your plants.

Happy birthday Geoff

Your lot signed a young Argentine keeper (Gazzaniga) from us (Gillingham) this summer, I think he's going to be a very good player in the future.

Also if Bertrand comes on during tonights England match we get £200k from Chelsea.

Strange Baubles on Potato Plant

Posted: 15/08/2012 at 18:22

It's nothing to be worried about, it's the fruit of the potato plant. They look like small green tomatoes because they're in the same family.

Do not eat them though as they are poisonous, the potatoes underground should be fine to treat as normal.

Hurrah! New Gardening Prog.

I'll watch it but I'll get annoyed if they make gardens for people who don't have the time (or in some cases the ability) to manage them properly, like the ITV show recently. I know it's nice to give deserving people pretty gardens but if they have three disabled children to look after it's only going to add to their burden.

As nice as they seem, I don't understand what Tufnell and Rice will be there for either.

Hissing Bees??

Fantastic! Must be great being rewarded for all the effort you've put in to making a wildlife garden, can we have some pics please?

Last year I had a very small colony of bees sharing my shed but they left in early summer and haven't come back this year.

My local Wyvale has a large selection of plants all reduced, I bought 2 blackcurrent plants and a redcurrent bush for £2.99 each.

Get out and grab some bargains
