Can somebody please advise me.

Ive grown some beautiful alliums this year in our herb garden, as you can see from the photo. sadly two flower heads have simply come away from the crown of the plant. Has a giant bird flown down and snapped it off? The break is straw yellow in appearance?

Come on BBC, please listen to us gardeners. 30 minutes is ridiculous...whats going on? The only additional treat we've had recently is the A-Z of gardening and even the clips on that are repeats!!

More gardening programmes please!!!!!!

Has anyone else found that their Daffs, and other bulbs are beginning to emerge too early. Will their growth slow down?

It works!!! I scattered it around my rose hedge in the front two spring seasons ago, and I have had clear green leaves. I plan to do the same next year. Soot does provide acidity, and roses do like slightly acid soil. Infact the idea was brought over from India during the Raj.

Verdun...sorry to hear that about your Zephrine and other shrubs, defonately sounds like the coastal air to me Im growing mine in a huge pot on a north/east facing wall. It needs plenty of air circulation though so have grown it up a wigwam. It did look stunning. Like artjak I spray all my climbing roses and roses very early spring with diluted washing up liquid...does the job.
