Talkback: How to grow lupins

Posted: 11/06/2012 at 16:20
 But the fact is that the poor soil comes fiirst.
THAT must be why mine are Happier than pigs ... in poo.... have effectivley created a garden from "wasteland" ..... so overgrown with everything imaginable and untouched for a good 5 years..... we are on clay too, so all I did was mix in some top soil, compost, and some manure to make the flowerbeds ..... seems to be working....for the Lupins at least!!!


Talkback: Peach leaf curl

Posted: 11/06/2012 at 16:11


So do I remove the affected leaves/sprouting growth?

Can Bordeaux mixture be used at this time of year?????????

I am only a novice gardener..(my lupins are rocking!)...but dont want to kill the tree off by over pruning it during its growing/fruiting season.

Many thanks

Talkback: Peach leaf curl

I have just identified that our old almond tree has developed peach leaf curl following a vigorous pruning back last November. Everything I have read has been about treating the problem in January/February.

What can I do, now that it is June to limit the problem. There is still a lot of new growth coming through. It is only a single tree and we don't "harvest" the fruit so loosing a crop is not a problem. But I would like to limit any damage so that the tree can recover fully.

Any advise greatly appreciated.
