I'm trying to create a cottage garden by adding Hollyhocks. I'm particularly interested in the old fashioned types, but I'm not sure which ones to include. Any suggestions welcome.

In my garden I have two Flowering Currant shrubs (Ribes Sanguineum) which are regularly pruned but all the leaves seem to have a brown tinge on them. Im not sure whether I have pruned them wrong or whether I have overwatered them. does anyone know what might be wrong ?

Thanks for the advice. I didn't realise pigeons would be a problem.

 

Spring Cabbages

Hello - I will be sowing some spring cabbages outside in October. My last attempt to grow these failed miserably as I didnt realise they should of been covered with net to prevent the cabbage white butterfly laying its eggs on the leaves, then hatching and completely destroying them! Will I need to cover the cabbages with net in October to prevent anything eating them ?

Can anyone tell me if theres a certain time when fruit bushes should be planted? I'm thinking of planting raspberries, blackcurrants and blueberries.

Wash them first, then crush them up. I've always done this so it doesnt encourage vermin.
