Brussel Sprouts

Yes, they are going to seed. They won't be any good.

A wild flower

Poppy family? My flower book says it is a member of the Fumitory family.

Pruning grapevine

Posted: 09/06/2015 at 15:10
Just a small point: if it comes from next door it is not your plant, neither are the grapes!!

If your neighbour decides to prune it on his side you can do nothing about it. He may be getting poor growth/fruit on his side!! He may get rid of it. Have a friendly chat with him!

You definitely will need to take out some of the bunches and ultimately grapes within each bunch.

After mine had flowered last year I just left them in the garden and they have just flowered again, magnificently.

In West Wales, wet and not particularly warm.

Disposal of large garden hedges

Just a question, but why are you taking down hedges at this time of year, when it is the nesting season?

If you had done it in the Autumn/Winter you could have sold the logs.

Rubber chippings

Rubber chips are usually used for riding surfaces where you want an all-weather surface. Are they actually meant to be used in gardens?

They are made of chopped up tyres.

Tips on planting hazel trees?

Posted: 06/06/2015 at 01:14
Chris, hazel can be cut flush with the soil. It will then grow up again. By all means cut it at 6 foot, but it may look very odd. Ugly even.

Growing potatoes

Posted: 06/06/2015 at 01:10
When potatoes flower it usually means that there will be usable potatoes underneath. Check by gently searching around with your fingers.

Do not cut anything off the plants it is neither necessary or advisable.

Organic weedkiller?

Posted: 02/06/2015 at 00:27
Organic weedkiller is not possible. Even vinegar is not organic, it is acetic acid.

Strawberries

Squirrels too, but the little b*****s pull off all the green ones, find they are unripe and chuck them away; and so it goes on until they remove the lot.

Net or lose the lot!
