I have a couple of yellow primulas this year.They seem to have flowered,and then wilted quite quickly,the flowers dont look damaged in any way.Is this common with these plants,and should I dead head them as there is quite healthy flower buds forming?

Ive got a heated propagator.I am a little unsure of what stage after the seeds have germinated do I open the vents,or do I remove the lids,and how long do I leave the seedlings on heat for?Any advise please!

I am new to growing fruit.I bought a malling promise last year it grew about five feet,and gave me quite a good harvest in July to September.A local gardener told me not to cut it back,to benefit the wildlife.I dont know what to do now,any advise?

A mulch is simply a loose layer of material placed on the surface of the soil.The organic option is leaf mould or well rotted garden compost.Gravel and pebbles can be used,but they are inorganic.

Last season I grew cornflowers in a pot,wild seed never fails to germinate.I bought the seeds from Thompson and Morgan,they were red white and blue. Another idea for the blue colour is an easy to grow hardy annual,Phacelia tropical surf its common name is californian bluebell,also available at the same place,just sow where they are to flower April to May,bear in mind they grow to about 12 inches,they are hardy annuals.

I love it .I could definetly learn alot from you .please keep posting pics,it is a great pleasure to see something amazing as this.I was fit and healthy when I established my front garden.Ive recently been diagnosed with an hernia which I am poorly with most days this restricts me,but I am managing to keep it neat and tidy.I have a back garden that would make an excellent veg plot,the problem is I cant dig anymore so Ive had to settle for a few veg bags,do you have any suggestions.
