Small Potatoes

Posted: 27/07/2012 at 13:55

I agree with you Claire.  I dug some earlies up the other day and there were about 3 tiny potatoes on each plant.  My beans and courgettes are suffering too!

Viburnum macrocephalum.

I don't know if this is any help Jean but my snowball bush had a low growing branch which rooted in the ground like a strawberry runner.  I then cut it off and transplanted it elsewhere in the garden and is now growing quite happily.  Not sure if you can do this with a sucker though.

Thanks everyone. I will keep you updated how they get on.

Thanks Pam and Kate.

I've had a look at the roots and they seem healthy enough.  I'm sure if I went back to the supplier they will say it's something I've done (which it probably is).

I did repot them and at first they were fine, but it seems to be a gradual process.  I'm not one to overwater so I'm perplexed as to why it's happening.  I'll just have to do my best to try and save them. 

Yes, it is Celia Smedley Pam. Don't know why I put Alice. I must have been having a brain block.

No, they are still inside at the moment. They are trailing "Coachman" and upright "Alice Smedley". I've never had problems with fuchsias before and just hoping they haven't got some disease.

Can anyone help with my problem please? I bought 4 small young fuchsia plants from a show in April and now they are starting to lose their leaves.  The stems are gradually going brown from the bottom upwards and when it is getting to where the leaves join they are starting to drop.  I've searched on the net and can't find any answers so I hope some of you knowledgeable gardeners may be able to help?
