Try some iron sequesterne which helps it take up nutrients . Presume you are only giving it rain water. 

How would you describe your garden?

Over the years my garden has taken on just about all of your list, except of course "best kept". Now have plans for Water and Alpines!! Is there no end? 

There are no problems in my garden, only challenges.. it's just that there are so many challenges that it's become a bit of a problem.

Very wet morning in Hampshire, definitely not forecast and nearly an apology from the "weather girl" on local TV..unheard of. Anyway had to desert garden and came in and did 2 loads of washing, changed sheets on bed and other bits and pieces. After lunch , back in garden for back breaking session reclaiming bed lost to weeds and rubbish. Very satisfying, but still lots to do before the "open day' and 8 days left.

Consider myself admonished, never to darken your greenhouse threshold again..

I'm not surprised when they receive so little publicity... they never were very fashionable, even if they did field 5 England captains on the same day! ( Trivial Pursuit Q)

The Saints have been in the Premier league for a year now, and came 14th. Sir Alex F. said they wre the best side seen at Old Trafford this year. We still lost though.

It really doesn't matter when you water as long as you do it often enough. Do it when you most enjoy doing it... the plants will say thank you either way..

No it is not too late ...I wouldn't pinch out at 2 leaves anyway but would wait for the plant to be a bit bigger/stronger. SPs like water and feed. Tomorite at half strength each time you water should get them going. Water every day or every other day, or the bottom half will go brown. Pick flowers very regularly. If you let them seed they think they have done their thing for the year and give up. Last year Monty Don said pick ALL the flowers once a week, even those in bud. I think this was good advice.

They like warmth too so if you have a nice sunny spot....if they are in a pot of course.

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.
