Hi Clari, do I remember someone on TV making pots out of newspaper using a pot as a mould wrapping the paper around the outside. Paper may have been damp to help moulding. Toilet roll inners work too and both can be planted out entire. Your volunteers could set up a work shop to produce them. Shame I don't live near. I have thousands collected over the years.

I missed GW, Verd. Must try to catch up next week re: Heleneiums

Tomato Blight

Toms in my GH last year attracted thousands of flies. This year no GH toms and few flies. Last year very unpleasant and Gh became almost a no-go area.

I predict a very small yellow flower with finely cut foliage.

Yes it has small yellow flowers. Quite pretty.

It looks like a very small strawberry plant, with yellow flowers. There could be runners but it is a year or so since I saw it. Verdone worked on mine.

I think Verd. should help, as it's clearly named after him. Perhaps he gets a rake-off?

Hi it may be trefoil as Mike suggests. I had an infestation a year or 2 ago after weeding and feeding my lawn. It colonises the gaps left by the death of the other weeds.  I rang the manufacturer who explained it to me.Therefore standard weed and feed will not work on it... try Verdone instead.

Good morning all. Away from gardening this w/e as going to a christening. But have set my little helper going which should show some further progress on the master plan. Another bed to be dug out and redesigned... where I will plant heleniums, rudbeckias etc, to continue the yellow theme in that part of the garden. Also my new phlox bed will soon be ready, plus sedums and roseannes. 

Have a good weekend everyone.

Hi, have spent most of day in village shop, doing the wages, shelf stacking and serving. Had a very nice piece of fillet steak from a farm 1 mile away, which was on it's sell-by date, for £2 !!  

Bought some ferns yesterday Gg, some from InExcess and some from Wolvercroft. And a couple of Early Safin heleniums for splitting.Looked for Lucifer crocosmia for my new hot border. A friend also helping in shop says she can give me lots, and some more ferns, and I will give her some Phlox.

I have bindweed and she has ground elder, so we promised not to swop that too

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
