Have a look at Harkness, or Cockers if you are buying quite a few.

Looks like my courgettes. Hopefully you will get some. Mine have been a disaster this year - too much rain. The fruits are rotting before they get to any size.

I bought a new pieris approx 8 weeks ago. It has lost it red leaves - they have all turned green. The plant is healthy enough. It has not been transplanted as it came in a large pot. It has been watered but not fed. Help!

Not a clue why they wouldn't grow in Wilts, grew them in restricted pots just the same , the pots in Edinburgh were cheap 'zinc', Wilts were terracotta. I got one year out of them and the never came back. Grew tomatoes outside in Wilts but never in Edinburgh. Both south facing sites.

I used to grow them in pots in my front south facing garden in Edinburgh, they lost their leaves but are still there growing 9 years after I left. Variegated ones died before they flowered - same site. Couldn't grow them in Wiltshire though!

No, didn't cut back at all, as it was a new plant. I've cut out the affected leaves and binned them. I've been using a tomato feed once per week.

Any ideas of how to get rid of these blisters? This is our second year with this plant and it has 2 bunches of grapes.

Last year I lifted over grown lavender and replaced with Santolina Lemon fizz. Every thing was fine until the last 2 weeks. I've lost all but one plant. I water/feed this bed once per week. Any idea where I've gone wrong?

Ideas for planters on patio?

My favourite for planters and children are, tomatos, peas and strawberries. If your planters are big enough YELLOW courgettes.This way they can see things grow which they can eat and you don't need to worry about poisonous plants - many 'cottage' plants are very poisionous.
