Whats eating my Tomatoes?

Something eating my tomatoes,could it be pigeons? They are growing in the garden in a pot. Would it be best to move them in the greenhouse?


Corn Cockle can kill?

Posted: 16/07/2014 at 09:49

In the Daily Mail today it states that Corn Cockle is poison and can cause severe stomach pains, vomiting,diarrhoea,dizziness,weakness,slow breathing and even death by touching it. Surely this cant be right as it is included in a lot of Wildflower seed mixes.I have grown it in my garden for the past few years and have never heard of this plant being a danger.


can anyone recognise this plant please?

To trim or not to trim

Come October/November I trim all my Fuchsias back by a third and remove all the leaves before overwintering them in the greenhouse, and maintain a temperature of at least 5 degrees.

You love life and then pray you dont wake up. Does not make sense.

fuschia leaves turned brown

Posted: 02/07/2014 at 12:57

Apart from the yellowing leaves the plant looks healthy, I wouldnt worry to much all fuchsias will shed some leaves during the season

What's wrong with my fuschia?

Posted: 02/07/2014 at 12:53

Give it a regular feed once a week, I use Miracle grow, and regular watering. Cut it down in spring to stop it becoming to top heavy.
