Garlic- rookie error!

It is a bit early for them to be going yellow, naturally.  One year mine collapsed with fungus disease.  It's not that is it?

how much water for my tomatoes

Posted: 09/05/2014 at 00:39

You can tell if they have enough/too much water when beads of water appear along the edges of the leaves.

Tomatoes are a plant that can be grown hydroponically so I would think it is difficult to over-water, but easy to wash all the nutrients out of the grow-bag.

Privet in flower attracts a huge number of butterflies.

I love welsh poppies; they seed themselves in unexpected places and never become a nuisance. 

Compost!

Nettle and comfrey feed.  Dilute to the colour of weak tea.  Probably 10:1

Potatoes

If you can get hold of them you can plant some now - it is a bit late - but you may lose them to blight which usually strikes later in the summer.

I certainly grow early varieties which mature before blight knocks them back.

Compost!

All the animal bedding and manure can go in the compost heap. Paper shreddings, cardboard and waste straw, but not hay as it often includes grass seeds. Add it all to the compost.

Take care with the nettles, absolutely no roots or seeds.  Do not put any roots or seeds of perennial weeds in the compost or they will come back to haunt you. 

Orchid leaves suddenly starting to go brown

Do you water it correctly and when necessary?  Do you feed it regularly?  Is the atmosphere round it too dry?  I have to say I keep mine in a light position, but out of direct sun.

I love them, though, because they flower for so long.

weed or veg?

I'd go with ragwort too.
