Hi there. We have a glasshouse 4mx4m and keen to grow vegetables. We have begun with a autopot system with tomatoes , aubergines and lebanese cucumbers. The tomatoes are fruiting well but despite lots of flowers the cucmbers and aubergines are not pollinating to fruit.
I am beginning to realise that I need help about what to grow and how to grow and pollinate – which plants are self pollinators and which seeds to buy
I really would like this to be a productive space throughout the year
Can you help with advice or know of any resources that might help me

We bought a plant from you last August and I’ve just been told it has “white scale”on it.
We are in a showroom and it has spread to our other plants too.
I was told it is treated with White Oil – would this be your recommendations and do you sell it if so?

I’ve been given a tillandsia (air plant) and have been putting it in water about once a week (as per the instruction card that came with it). However, the leaves are starting to go brown, curling up and looking like they are dying. I’m not sure if I have given it too much water, or with this heat the last few weeks I’ve not given it enough water!!! Help please! I don’t want to kill it as it was a present from my brother and his partner!

Is there a rule of thumb guide about removing laterals on tomatoes. I am growing a wide range of varieties, some in containers and hanging baskets[tumblers] and some that spread over the ground [ramblers] I am unsure as to if I should remove the laterals or not.

I have 2 Calathea plants, I believe the Rufibarba type.
They live in my conservatory in Christchurch and aren’t looking great.
Originally I thought they could have some kind of tiny bugs, see the close-up image of the speckled looking leaf. Then I thought perhaps I was over-watering, but then I read into it more and now I’m concerned they’re getting too much light.
I’ve attached a photo of where they live, which shows where the sun goes. When it’s high they would likely get a bit of direct sun on their leaves.
I usually do so well with house plants, but I can’t seem to get it right with these. Does anyone have any advice?
Thank you in advance

I’ve been trying to locate an indoor plant called a waxy hoya. It’s a hanging plant with with white / pinkish flowers in a round bunch.
Do you stock them or where I could find one.
Also, do you stock African Violet plants. Again something I’m finding difficult to find.
