Planted quality tomato plants (from Palmers) in large plastice containers with quality potting mix and hand full of sheep pellets. The leaves and now the fruit are curling inwards – the fruit on the Beefstake are little and insignificant. The leaves are not turning colour or falling off. They are placed on the north side on edge of our decking and get plenty of sun from midday onwards. I water them generously every other day. Very disappointed. There are 6 pots/plants. 2 other pots are placed on the ground – concrete below are the same. Other years I have had them in the ground and no problems. We do not have the garden space these days. What am I doing for this to have happened.

My grafted Sweet 100 tomato has been affected on it’s topmost part by last night’s frost, in Rotorua. Should I cut the affected part off, and hope it sends out side shoots, or leave it and hope for the best?

I have tried growing rubber beans for a few years with little success. My garden is north facing well drained soil & I buy seedlings which always grow vigorously with plenty of leaves but very few flowers & hence very few beans. The plants get watered well & fed with liquid fertiliser. What am I doing wrong?

Hi, I planted a rhubarb last summer and everything I read said not to harvest the first years crop but to let it die back over winter to feed the root stock. I did this even though my plant was a triffid. It’s now spring and my plant us still quite large.should I cut it all back to allow for new growth or should I leave it.

Some of my asparagus crowns which are 4 yr old plants which are about the size of a small saucer are rock hard , and the new shoots are unable to penetrate through, and if they do shoot around there outside of the crown they have brown scales.

Could you please give us an idea as to what is eating our bean leaves. Most of the damage looks likes snails but there are none hiding on the plants and none killed by slugbait on the ground.
There are many small holes in the middle of the leaves also obviously not done by slugs.In the absence of hovering birds, (plants don’t seem strong enough to support a sparrow.) We’re stumped.
Thanks.

Club root is in parts of our garden. I’ve read many websites, all suggesting there’s no short fix, taking 7-20 years for soil to be ‘renewed’. We have stopped growing brassicas in affected areas of the garden. Do you have any suggestions to improve the affected soil?

With thanks
Teresa

I’m an experienced vegetable gardener & usually can grow anything well. However I’ve hit a brick wall trying to grow snow or snap peas! I’ve tri d seed & seedlings with same result.
They’re in a sunny spot against a fence, with netting support, should they ever get high enough!
I dug in some well rotted mature compost underneath, cover with netting to protect against birds, just in case they are the culprits. But I cannot get peas to grow beyond about 6″ high. My last effort is with Organic seedlings, which after a month are smaller than when I planted them. They look sickly, sort of shrivelled….Grrrrr.
Any ideas?
