Hi

I have three courgette plants and each one has about 7-8 flowers but no courgettes, could some one tell me why this is and could I do something to help. The plants are in a veg bed outside that gets about 4-5 hours of morning sunshine from about 8 am then is in shade for rest of the day. 

 

Thank You.

Hi All

My potato plants have grown very tall I have 10  plants and 5 have grown to almost a metre in height is this normal I was under the impression they would grow out wards rather than up. They are in a vegetable plot so not in bags or raised beds. This is my first year growing potatoes so any advice greatly appriciated.

Thank you. I water mine in the evening as mornings I don't have time.

Evening 

I'm new to gardening and have been given loads off advice and tips but the one thing that's causing a bit of conflict is should I water in the morning or evening? also does it really matter as long as they get water? 

Thank you

Thank you. This is the first year for me growing potatoes in my veg plot. I will stop worrying about them now.

Does anyone else's potatoes seem to be growing a bit  out of control?
