What's wrong with my pepper plants? Leaves turning white

Ryan, it's only just April; give them time. Lots of things have poor pollination before they get into their stride.

Yes, certainly. Just poke the cuttings in the ground where you want them to grow.

Sunburn. Usually where there is water on the leaves in strong sunlight. And peppers rarely need watering every day. Treat them hard!

The top picture looks more like it has been nibbled.

As an update on my released butterfly. The next day when the weather got bad, it was battering on the door to get back in!

As far as I know people are responsible for both sides of their own hedge. Most neighbours, if you ask, will allow you to come into their garden to cut your hedge. And clean up the clippings.

Jimmy, have you ever consulted a solicitor? It's the quickest way I know to make a rich man poor. I speak from experience, and I would never contemplate doing it over a tree, however much it annoyed me.

Frankly it would be cheaper to move house.

how deep rooting are courgettes?

I grew sweetcorn in my raised beds last year. Depth about 12 - 16 inches. They were amazingly good. Never had such a good crop.

I only have raised bed to grow in. All on Tarmac.

Too tough and course for lawns, I think.

Food waste is also turned into Council compost. Not by every council, but certainly by some.

what licence to sell produce do I get?

Dave you are slightly incorrect. If you are running a business from home do not designate any specific room as your 'office' or you run into trouble from the tax man and Capital Gains when you come to sell. You do not need to do any building work to fall foul of 'change of use.' Home to commercial premise is enough. Also insurance if the general public are coming on to your property.

Sorry Chloe, I don't want to dissuade you, I think it's a great idea. Good Luck.
