The plants look healthy but some of the leaves are curling downwards. They were planted in the early spring and it is now beginning of Sept.
Anyone out there with any experience with this? I’ve been watering 2X per week ( I’m in central PA) but we’ve had a lot of rain the last few days.
Thanks for any suggestions!
Many people are wanting to plant fruit and vegetables for the first time and would really benefit from any first hand knowledge from the experienced gardeners among our community.
It would be great to have any tips on preparing soil, ideas on what grows well in pots or containers, what will grow just as well with or without a greenhouse, when to plant out, when to harvest...I could go on and I'm sure there are plenty of questions many of you would like to ask!
Feel free to post any questions or advice whether you are a novice or an old hand and hopefully we'll all get to learn something new!
As March is the time that hedgehogs come out of hibernation I wondered if anyone has seen one yet? We used to regularly see them in our garden but haven't seen one for quite a few years now.
We live in a rural area, our garden is 'untidy' and not fenced all the way round so I don't really understand why we don't have see them any longer.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
This might seem an odd idea but I’m widowed, living in a rural cottage near Northwich, and have a good sized garden that has got away from me...to be honest, I never even began to get the better of it.
I do have dogs and chickens. I wondered if anyone in the area wanted to enjoy gardening and might like to share mine.
I’ll do my bit but would like to be guided by someone more knowledgeable. Dani.
What's the matter with us! I see a new article - 'The Best Wild Bird Foods for your Garden' What I wonder is why we can't let wild birds be wild and fend for themselves - why do we have this need to make them into 'pets' and drag them into our economic system so that they become as reliant on supermarket produce as we are!
