Thank you hoeglory, I will try to find out if there will be a potato day at my local garden centre, sounds like a good chance to learn things about it :)

Thank you Colin and Philippa! You've both given me 2 pungent ways to go about it :) I'll browse around the garden centres here and then if I don't find what  I'm looking for (I want Charlotte potatoes) then I'll order by next month. 

Buying Seed Potatoes

Hi everyone, I want to grow potatoes (for the first time ever) next year and I would really appreciate some help on this: when should I order seed potatoes?


Many, many thanks in advance :)

The Gingernut Cover-up ?

Posted: 03/02/2016 at 14:10

Hi Hogweed, just saw this post, being a ginger nut lover myself....if you have an Aldi nearby, go there. They have gingernuts. I went through the same disbelieving horror a few weeks ago when I didnt find them at Tesco....but was saved by Aldi

Ok I will do. Its ok if I don't have any fruit this year, I just want the tree to survive. There'll be plenty of time for fruits in the future, right?
Thank you once again, Dove!

I think it very probably was; I was away for 6 weeks from March to the end of April

Thanks a lot Mike. At least now I know what's going on. I've seen some new leaves starting to sprout. Does that mean my tree will live? Also, is it contagious? There's a cherry tree next to this tree. Should I spray it as well? Thank you once again

Hi everyone, my patio peach tree was good and fine and produced spectacular pink flowers in march. But for the last few weeks, the flowers dried up and the leaves curled up and withered. Today I saw white powdery residue on the curled up and ruined leaves. I sprayed it with bug killer last week but it didn't help. Can anyone tell what it could be?
