Growing parsley and basil

Posted: 07/04/2013 at 08:24
Basil wont like being outside, well, it doesnt where i live, its better suited as a window sill plant.
You could put a few slug pellets around, discretely hidden under something so the birds wont get them, not that i believe they eat them anyway.

Rosa Rugosa

I have it popping up everywhere as well, so i know what you mean, it comes up well away from the main plant so i assume the roots trail for miles. I, personally wouldnt use weed killer because i dont like it, but short of this, i just dont know.
The birds like the fruits in winter, so perhaps thats a good reason to keep some.

Rhubarb in pots

Well done for keeping the rhubarb going, will it eventually need going in the ground, ? I have never grown it, but would like to try, there is a good gardening website called 'MyGardenRHS' they may have some gardening info there.

Tumbling Tom Red

I grew those little ones last year and i didnt nip the tops out, but i did grow them in the greenhouse in pots, i think they will be fine just left in your baskets, just feed once a week with tomorite or similar.
Maybe a tomato grower will see your question and give you some more advise tomorrow.

Planting under yew tree

Posted: 06/04/2013 at 08:22
We see a lot of yew trees in our work in churchyards, the others are correct, nothing at all will grow under the yew. They grow huge in time, my advise would be to get rid of it, especially if its near your house.
