It is illegal to put Japanese Knotweed in the green bin. Our local tip won't take ragwort either.

Doesn't eating seasonally mean trying your best to eat produce IN SEASON?

French beans don't take to freezing very well, anyway.

I try to eat seasonally. No more asparagus until next year. The only major exception I make is frozen peas!

Ironically the best thing we can do for Greece and Tunisia is buy their produce. The fresh stuff arrives by air.

What is causing the petals to fall off my Dahlias!!

Make sure you remove every single one of the spent flower heads or the dahlias will stop flowering, reasoning that their work is done.

My Jack Russell used to eat young nettles. Do heed Steve' advice about worming. Dogs can pick up worms in many ways.

Certainly not basil. Sorry. Usually considered a weed, I think.

Leaf mould is not 'mould' on leaves, rather rotted down leaves used as a soil conditioner.

Some phlox are prone to mildew, others seem immune. Unfortunately you have the non-immune kind.

Have you looked on Wikipedia, there seems to be lots of useful information there.

When can new seeds be used

Most seeds are at the right age when the plant casts them naturally. Some seeds germinate best when fresh; some when sown and left outside during winter frosts; some sown the next year.

Study the plant and see what it does naturally.
