Caterpillar attack

Posted: 16/07/2013 at 19:21

I can remember one year planting Kale for the first time. And I have to say, I've never in all the years of gardening seen just how many caterpillars covered my garden that year - they were even coming into the shed. Everything was ruined and covered with the critters, so I blamed Curly Kale and of course, the Cabbage white.

Anyone planted kale near you ?

Tomato experiment

The idea is fine if you have plenty of time on your hands. I'm currently trying this method with 3 plants and I'm struggling to stop them from drying out. The rest of my plants which are in the bigger pots are doing so much better. So for that reason, I will stick with using the bigger pots in the future.

Windows and doors should be open now, mine have been for weeks. What exactly do you want to cut away ?

Does the crack run into any neighbouring land/gardens ? or is your garden a isolated case in your area.


I would still try and push a cane/stick into the crack like, if it disappeared you'd def have to look more indepth into the problem and get a expert round.

Have you tried pushing a bamboo cane down into this crack ? How far does it go.

I don't think there anything to worry about. Could be a ant channel or just dry earth.

Can you take a photograph ? It may help to analyse the problem.

Gets a rinse when the butt is near empty but I never clean it.

New turf/grass problem

I'd start watering it again, you may have stopped too soon. The bare patches should knit up and the yellow will return to green. 

It would be my first port of call.
