Talkback: How to grow early potatoes

Posted: 23/03/2013 at 11:36
Has Monty Don seen the temperature readings or the weather forecasts recently, especially for North Yorkshire where I live? Some comment on the reaction of potatoes to cold wet ground in early spring would have been appropriate!!

Talkback: Japanese knotweed

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:29
I note from http://www.phlorum.com/identify-japanese-knotweed.html there's a cross between JK and its Giant brother that CAN set seed....? I'm a bit concerned about this:my current problem has what look like seeds on the dead flower heads?

Is it really a good idea to dig it out if a fragment of the rhizome can persist in the soil and regenerate even after 20 years? See . http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/wildlife/130079.aspx#How_to_control_Japanese_knotweed
