Re: Very Small Globe Artichokes

You are obviously more of an artichoke connoisseur than I am Cobbarn - they are one veg that my family and I have never been able to feel the love for, so I don't grow them, although I do grow cardoons for their ornamental appeal. I wonder if it is possible to go back to the person you originally ha...

Re: Pea and Bean weevil?

Healthy plants usually go on to produce good crops without having to spray Catherine - or you could consider covering the young plants with crop protection netting or fleece until well established. If you do need to spray Bug Clear Gun for Fruit & Veg, Ecofective Bug Killer is approved for use o...

Re: Flooding

For now Connie I'd concentrate on the planting holes as others have said - adding your preferred nutrients as you go, then you can top up with mulches as suggested above around hungry plants such as squashes and in the autumn either dig in or just lay over the top plenty of well rotted manure or gar...

Re: Polytunnel Plastic Grade??

Hi Connie Any of the polytunnel manufacturers will be able to sell you a new cover for your frame if you give them the size. As others have mentioned covers some in various grades but all good ones will have UV protection to give the cover a longer life when exposed to bright sunlight. It is also a ...

Happy Easter!

Hi Chaps. Just wanted to wish all our forum regulars a very happy Easter from all on the KG team. Looks like the weather is set fine for gardening so we hope you have a great time in the garden - or perhaps visiting someone else's. Cute as they are, may the bunnies keep away from your carrots.

Re: Merry Crimbo and a Happy New Year!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas folks. Judging by the comments on another thread started by Pa Snip, you (mostly) all did, apart from the occasional family hiccup (but that's Christmas!).
