Hi all

Looking for advice on descent websites that sell Veggie plants. Recently acquired an allotment and keen on getting it productive.

Also, anyone know of a good veggie calendar?

Your advice / guidance/ tips will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi

My cauliflower leaves have been stripped back to the stalk by something

What could it be? I couldn't see any bugs or slug trails

What can I do?

Many thanks for your much needed help!

Hi Gold1locks,

Please take a look at the photos, how far back should I prune it? As you can see there are only a few leaves on it ...sadly.

Thanks

UPDATE

Hi all,

Had a look at the roots today and it looked like moss I couldn't make out the roots at all. I didn't want to scrape away the 'moss' too much incase I damaged my plant more. Have repotted it and now we wait to see.

The foliage that was there has been growing very well ... just the rest of the plant is bare

Will keep posting updates

OK ta, I'll give that a go

I water it religiously so I don't think it's that.

Is my Rhododendron dead ...or not?

It has lost all but perhaps 10 leaves which are producing flowers.

I have had it for about 7 years in a pot on my patio. Last year it had a lot of cabbage catepillars on it.

Help! It's my favourite, a beautiful lilac colour.

What can I do?
