Manchester- mine are just budding. Very sparse though. Think there's too much foliage.

Unexpected tomatoes

I have heard that too, Welshonion. My veg patch was taken over this year by "rogue" potatoes that had sprouted up from those that had inadvertently been left behind! I'm looking forward to seeing what I can dig up.

Suggestions for filling a small south facing border

Maybe you could get really friendly with your neighbours and acquire some established plants from their gardens? Most gardeners would be happy to help out and eager to pass on root cuttings of their favourite plants.

Thanks for advice. Sister is now going to re-pot to see if she can salvage it.

My sister's clematis seems to be dying from the bottom up. The leaves start looking mottled and are then turning brown. It is in a pot and has buds on it. It was healthy up till a week or so ago. Can anything be done to save it?

Potato help

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 22:22

I never pay top price for seed potatoes. Last year at B&Q, 10p a bag. This year at Tesco, 20p a bag. Always get at end of buying season and have had really good crops. I don't worry about how late it is to plant as they always start growing quickly. I have left harvesting till late autumn/winter, dug them up as and when needed and had some good size potatoes.

Runner beans

I use a frame that used to be a mini greenhouse till the plastic cover ripped. The beans grow through the shelves and around the outside. The unsightly frame is soon covered by foliage and flowers and then the beans. Works a treat.

I have a plant with one stem, but a bit of a gap between leaves. Do you think iIf I cut off the top of this one,I could cultivate it and generate a new plant - and also, the original plant would survive and produce new leaves?

too late to re-pot acer?

It will live in the pot you have it in - mine have lived for years in the same pot. it sounds like you need to tie it down. get it into the right size pot that suits you and put some weight into it. I have pebbles on the surface but this doesn't always work and it does fall over........maybe the weight needs to be at the bottom of the pot.....I need to follow my own advice....get some weight into it......!
