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.
Cheers TJ

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.

What can I do

What time of the year is good for planting assorted herbs please?

Also we are thinking of putting in a hedge.
Were thinking of Lilypilly.
We live in GulfHarbour Whangaparoa.
Would that be suitable?

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?

I have 2 raised bed with the same garden mix in them. I have Broccoflower in one and Broccoli in the other. Planted at the same time fron pun nets purchased from Palmers. The Broccoli is growing normal size but the Broccaflower is more than twice the height. About a metre. My question is why and will The Broccaflower eventually produce anything worth harvesting? If it is not going to produce anything worth while I need to remove them and replant.
Many thanks
Pat
