It's a rather big greenhouse to. It's 60ft x 34ft so rather a few growing down the central section. I seen two bees in there today but obviously need more  time to go on bee catching duties then ... This could be fun!

Hi, my runner beans have grown brilliant, I'm due to have what's going to be an earlier crop. They are growing in a big greenhouse. They have flowered like mad. And still continuing to do so. My flowers are falling off in places a little much, obviously I don't want much more of this happening. 

ive been suggested that i give them some lime mixed with water and go along the roots watering them. As it helps the flowers to stick. I thought it was just to do with the lack off bees about But I'm still new to growing So it's all learning More and more.

Any ideas. thank you in advance. Natasha 

Green/whitefly on tomato plants

Posted: 28/06/2013 at 16:03

I have both green and white on mine. More so white then green. I can't remember the name now off the top of my head. I asked someone I knew before hand who's got more experience as a grower and they said it was fine. It's caused my leaves to curl though. I'm new to all the growing so its all learning. Where can I purchase the wasps, have you any idea? I've found that other garlic type smoke one is for use when plants are in there as the sulphate ones are for when cleaning out. thanks

Currently having a problem greenfly and whitefly on my tomato plants. They have recently been sprayed. Helped to kill off a little but still a fair few to many left. I've been advised to spray every three days for a period. I've also been advised on some smoke  bomb type method. I'm unsure to what this really is and if it is beneficial or going to do more damage. Advise wanted please ... Thanks Natasha

Hi, i have been having a fair few ants on and around my cucumber plants. Was wondering would they eat them? I see no signs of this so far but Im cautious. Or could they be causing me any other problems? Thanks Natasha
