Mares Tail - how to win

Posted: 16/07/2015 at 14:37

Hi, I have just found this on my new allotment. Wondering if I can complain? Someone mentioned that with Japanese Knotwood, they send over someone to remove it.

Raised beds on allotment

Yes, that's my question too - even I've just gotten an allotment and was wondering to put in raised beds or just to plant on direct. Any advice would be appreciated.

White rambling rose

It could be a snow goose (I have one and it has white/almond coloured flowers and they come in clusters).

That's quite a start, thank you all!

Hi, any ideas for a section of the garden which gets a lot of sun and has dry soil? I have planted lavender there and there's also a Thyme and Rosemary which are doing very well but the patch is still bare. Any other plants that would thrive there? Thanks.

Ahh okay, thanks for the reply. Checked them out on the internet and they are gorgeous.   I saw that a few retailers in the UK stock them so will check them out.

Hi Lottie14, on a side note, may I ask the website from where you've been able to get the Impruneta pots imported? Thanks!

Hi, I've a few questions about the tomato plants I'm growing for the first time!

 - What seems to be eating some of the plants (please see picture attached) and what can I do about it?

- My 8-10" young plants are starting to grow many side shoots. Should these be removed? (the varieties I'm growing are tumbling Tom and SunGold)

- I notice some of these plants are already starting to flower? Is it too early and should I be removing these?

Thank you all in advance!

Blueberry plant from Sainsburys

Posted: 17/05/2015 at 12:38

Last year, I bought a blueberry plant from my local Sainsburys. It didn't say which variety it is on the tag but I'm now curious. Anyone else bought them from Sainsburys and know the variety? It has flowered profusely this year and seems like I'm going to get many fruits 

bulb planting advice

Hi, I too have planted tuberose bulbs for the first time. Planted them a month ago and they have been in my growhouse all this time. However, no sign of any life yet so tempted to dig and see if there're roots growing! Yes, I think I'll bring the pot in and keep it on my windowsill.
