Becks-I am embarrassed-(p.s.what size is it??)

The show was fantastique-switched to the no commentary option-those voices really grate-all that stuff from Hazel's Olympic book of statistics and some inane questions- did it for me-much better without and I stayed up till the end

Sun shining but cooler

Doesn't really matter- but you can always start a new discussion

As a general rule you can lift after flowering-but it depends on the variety and type-earlies, second earlies, maincrop.

Do you know the variety?

Have you seen one?????

 Did anyone see the gardeners world program which was letting everyone see the differance between our small english ladybirds and some larger ladybirds , preditors from abroard .?

 I think it was when Monty was on  last year . ones we are supposed to destroy are bigger and they are wiping out  our little ladybirds

Harlequin ladybirds- more on that subject here

I've grown potatoes in sacks for the first time this year and am wodering whether it is better to keep them in the sacks or dig them up and put them into storage sacks, On some of the ones I am digging up there are whats best described as warts, also growing on the branches what looks like green tomatoes or crab apples. Could someone tell me whate these three things are please.

Also are onins best left in ground or hung up when ready?


They are the fruits of the potato-highly poisonous do not be tempted to eat-they look like tomato as they are from the same family

I have just lifted one container of main-crop potatoes as they had the dreaded blight-the earlies strangely are untouched-weighed them -3 lb from 4 tubers -again not bad but they would have got bigger

Can see flowers appearing on french beans
