Ok, bear with me, I'm new to all this!
Raspberries...I planted autumn and summer varieties (the man at the garden centre said I could) in Feb/March, should they resemble raspberries this year or is it a next year thing? at the moment they are still just canes with the summer ones having a teeny weeny bit of foliage, they did start to get leaves earlier on but they died.
Potatoes.....Is there a knack to digging them up as I keep stabbing them and do I wait for the flowers to die before I dig them up. I have dug one bush up, early on tuesday morning and was so excited to see my spuddies, I cooked them and ate them for breakfast!!! yum yum!!! (they were very tiny though)
Finally beans and peas.....think mine are way behind! the beans are still only about 4" high and the slugs have attacked them, some are literally a 2" stalk...I take it this is fatal and they won't grow now?? I did put pellets down yesterday although I know I should of done it sooner and my peas are around 10" high but still very spindly. Is everything normal or have I got a lot to learn
Think I'll leave it there for now.....could go on for hours!
