Rejuvenating thyme

Posted: 27/04/2014 at 19:24

I have had one of my thyme plants in a pot for about 5yrs and it was a bit woody so I have taken it out and planted it in the garden and pushed some of the bush stems to ground level and placed some good compost over them so that they will re root.New shoots are starting to pop up already when it is more established I will cut back the old plant. Hope this helps

I use BBQ skewers as well they work fine if ur worried about poking your eyes when picking beans I put empty small pop bottles over them works a treat.....Nice to know someone young is interested in gardening keep up the good work

Apple tree

My latest apple tree that I bought last year has a mass of blossom on it and I am afraid that if too many turn into apples the young branches will snap, should I take some of the young apples off ? They are Bramleys so they have the potential to be large apples.

I have tried to grow courgettes for a few years now they start great I have a few and then the leaves start to go grey dry and crispy! I have tried growing them in the ground,pots and grow bags and the same thing happens.I have also been careful about just watering arond the root to avoid too much water on the leaves.I would like to give them another go this year any ideas as to what I am doing wrong.

I have tried for the past 5yrs to grow courgettes, they start really well grown from seed and I have one or two courgettes and the leaves start to go white and rot.I have grown them in pots, grow bags and last yr I grew them in a bed to give them more space but, the same thing happens.I have tried bug guns and growing marigolds amongst them bu.t nothing works anyone have any other sensible ideas. I would be grateful
