It is probably best to pinch the flowers off - I don't do that with my African Blue though as the bees love it so much. I take cuttings from it at the end of the summer

Speed gardening

We still have a hosepipe ban here in Surrey

Gardening at the moment is a bit like doing the hokey cokey  - in,out, in,out shake it all about

I hope your sink turns out well

Thymes,Oregano,Chives,Sages and Parsley would look great in a sink  You could try Sweet Basil but I always seem to do better with it in my greenhouse. There is  a Basil called 'African Blue' which would grow in your sink - it could be placed at the back with  other herbs to the front and sides. It would be best to use a free draining compost - maybe John Innes with some multipurpose and horticultural grit added.Others will give you some advice as well I am sure

Standard Fuscia problem

Posted: 07/07/2012 at 15:40

I think you may have rust on your Fuchsia - I would carefully pick off affected leaves and put them in the bin or burn them - don't compost them. A fungicide spray may help.

I grow standard Fuchsias but haven't experienced the bark splitting - I hope someone can help

Advice on repotting my tomato plants please.

Posted: 07/07/2012 at 05:48

I would suggest using grobag and then feeding your tomatoes regularly with tomato food - e.g Tomorite - when the first flowers have set and you can see baby tomatoes

I hope it didn't have a party in my greenhouse Gary

I asked Barry to pick the cucumber as I had noticed it was grazed when I was doing the watering - when he turned it over that is what he found

I enjoyed my dinner thanks!!!
