courgette

Posted: 14/06/2014 at 12:47

I concur with Dove.  The fruit haven't been pollinated so they fall off.  This usually happens early in the season.  By the end of the season you will be getting more courgettes than you can deal with.

Blackbirds for sure.  You have to be very careful with netting and leave no gaps.  It's light very, very early in the morning; they have hours in which to prospect the gaps in your defences.

We bought ours from our greengrocer.  Ask, he may know someone.  Also look at the small ads in your local paper.  Or look in Yellow Pages.

Just because they are on sale in April it doesn't mean it is the ideal time.  I concur with Dave.

perpetual spinach tall and flowering

Why would you want to do that?

If you are determined, let the seeds mature and the foliage die down then separate the seeds out and make sure they are fully dry (or they will go mouldy) before you store them.

Rose black spot

Black spot is a consequence of clean air.  It used to be kept in check by the sulphur pollution.

Sulphur spray is therefore the best cure.  Is it obtainable?
