Green manure

I put alfalfa down at the end of July, first time trying so will provide feedback after winter.

It might to late, but having said that, i picked nearly all the chillis off one of my plants and noticed a couple of day later that it had new flowers again, with a week the chilli pod was formed and is about 3 inch long, still green of course.

Hi Andy, I am not 100% sure, tomatos will polinate from a single plant, and i think chillis can too, although i never grow a single plant.

Is it possible they are not being pollinated?  try transfering the pollen from one to the other, i use a little paint brush, flicking the stem can also work.

It should recover naturally, mine throws out new leaves so appears to be ok.

I cant reference the past as i have not been interested in gardening that long, but i find that my garden is full of insects, i have taken a lot more interest since the all the recent publicity on the matter, there are lots of bees or all sorts, hoverflies, ladybirds, butterflies and caterpillars, i have noted around 20 types or caterpillar so far and i dont go looking for them. I am in the north west by the way.

Another foxglove question and a rose cutting question

I cut mine back about 2 months ago now, i expected it to justproduce more foliage for next year, it has infact flowered again but rather than 1large spire, i have 4 medium sized spires.  I will cut it back again once the flowers are done.
