Wish list for seed and plant swap

I think that if you collect your own sweet pea seeds, you cannot be sure what colours will come. If you only want orange you may have to buy. I dont think I have seen orange ones.

Feeding & Mulching

David, if you prefer powdered feed, can you not just scrape back your bark, apply feed then cover again.

I think you should use whatever you are used to, you must be doing right you have a fantastic garden.

Kitchen, are you sure its rust and not just brown on the cut end of the leaves.

I always take my leaves off by running my fingers right down to the bottom of it and breaking at ground level. Any cut end of a leaf will go brown.

My verbascum leaves were full of holes but I dont think it was the caterpillars, the holes were there long before the caterpillars hatched. Mine were holed by tiny green shiny leaf beetles, they had a go at almost everything in my garden, but t

he new leaves come through ok.Anyone think I am correct there?

I cant see much wrong with it.

You will always have some dead leaves and the new growth looks good. What do you think is wrong?.
