Gardening quiz

Here's one:  What have the following got in common?  A London bus, a football pitch, The Isle of Wight, Wales and France?

Brussel Sprouts

Best eaten after a frost.  Unless, of course they are an early variety. The frost will also get rid of caterpillars.

Or maybe try an Apple Day.  Look on the net, there may be one near you, though it's getting a bit late now.  Also look on the Brogdale site.  Or look at the photos on the fruit tree nursery sites.

Raspberries

Are you planting the raspberries too deep?  They don't like that.

Can anyone help

Deadly nightshade is pretty rare and grows on chalk and people really shouldn't say plants are Deadly Nightshade unless they actually know the plant.

Woody nightshade is very common and I've never heard of anybody being poisoned by it though undoubtedly someone, somewhere has been.

I would get rid of it because it seeds prolifically and is a bl**dy pest!

Ivy out of control

How did you let it get that far?  Don't put bleach on it.  

Red Kites

As I sit at the computer there are three Red Kites flying to and fro past the window.  They are so beautiful.  It is very windy today so they are twisting and turning, showing off their lovely colouring.

Cress question

flowering rose, are you getting in a muddle?  What you describe is watercress.  The OP appears to be talking about mustard and cress.  Different plants.

You are supposed to eat it in salads and sanwiches before it gets to that stage!!  It will be coarse in texture and taste if you let it get big.

Grow it indoors; it germinates quickly. A packet of seeds is cheap.  Put what you have in the compost heap.
