A Feast For Crows

Are they eating the potatoes or are they after worms and insects?  If there are a lot of them they are probably rooks.

Apple picking and storing

Posted: 29/09/2013 at 20:15

Do not attempt to store windfall apples because they will have been bruised and they will go rotten and infect all the others.

Use them up, process in some way or freeze.

If you want to store apples they must be unblemished and picked from the tree.

Sunflowers

Well it just depends where the bird seed came from.  There are lots of multi-stemmed sunflowers, but usually the birds polish off all the seed so it doesn't get a chance to germinate.

Ideas needed to cover unsightly soil bank!

Cotoneaster for one.  There'll be lots of suggestions along soon when the site is sorted out.

Zoomer, there are lots of greens that go through the winter.  And best of all, leeks.

To be honest, I think it's a crop that is best left to the professional.  If they are still small now, there's not much time for them to grow much bigger.

Don't do it then!

Tomato plant is this late blight ?

Posted: 23/09/2013 at 17:25

Yes it is blight. When you have removed the tomatoes, burn the plant so that you don't spread the infection.

"Plant in ericaceous compost" not specific enough!

Posted: 23/09/2013 at 17:21

Calculate in your mind how far you think the plant is going to spread and make sure you use ericaceous compost in the hole you dig.  Is it going to grow into a big plant, or is is a rockery azalea?  Or is it in a pot?

1st Time Growing Garlic

Posted: 23/09/2013 at 00:42

I usually plant my garlic at half-term, late October.  Separate the cloves and plant only the biggest ones from the outside of the bulb.  Ensure you are planting single cloves, not doublers.

Don't plant too deep, but ensure the clove is buried.  From 6 - 9 inches apart each way.
