Hi Mary 370 that's a great idea I'll try that, smashing.😊

Hi Posy, thanks for your advice, it makes a lot sense and I think maybe I'm worrying to much.

I feel better for asking the forum gardeners and feel more confident to grow my seeds.

I think it's great to have other gardeners advice at our fingertips, .😊

Thankyou Bob and Lyn for both your advice, it's very useful and I appreciate it.

Too propagate or not

hi people, I have bought a few  packets of flowers seeds I hope  to germinate for next spring. i do this every year and  would say my success rate is 50/50. I always wonder if a propogator would increase my succes, but when I look into buying one I haven't a clue which one suits my needs.

Do I buy a large one and grow sections of different seeds in one tray? Do I need an expensive one or will a bog standard one do the job?

Or, which I always end up doing is to wait until the right time to grow each particular flower?? Any advice would be helpful.

Caterpillars on my blueberries

Posted: 02/08/2017 at 17:02

Hi Bob, thanks for your reply, I did notice back in October at least one leaf was curled round and there was a web weaved in it. I guess that was the culprit.

i will check it out next year and look more closely, I had a bumper crop this year so I guess I can afford to be a bit relaxed about it, however I will be on guard next year.

thanks again.

Caterpillars on my blueberries

hi people can anyone tell me how or where some tiny green caterpillars came  from on my blueberry bushes.

i have just been picking the berries and have found quite a few of them wriggling away, inbetween the berries, obviously enjoying the crop.

im thinking maybe next year I need to look out for them earlier and deal with them before they start to increase.

Im happy to share some of my fruit as long as they don't destroy too much or eat to much of my crop.

Can anyone tell me a bit about them and how to deal with them earlier in the season, thanks

Does anyone recognise this tree

This small tree was outside our building whilst on holiday in the south west of England, I could not find anyone who could tell me the name of it, so if anyone recognises it I would appreciate its name, thanks, sorry the photoes are sideways, no idea why
