Re. your recent email – it says to fill the pots with a good quality potting mix and then says to choose a substrate that holds moisture and drains well. Does that mean to add a layer over the potting mix or is it still referring to the potting mix itself?

We have a glasshouse which we just put up in November so this is our first winter. Can we plant potatoes for winter and what else would you recommend to plant during the winter. Also we have planted onion and beetroot seedlings and they are coming through really well on our windowsill, can they be planted in the glasshouse.

I recently dug up a crop of potatoes which I had grown in containers and although healthy spuds, there were not many of them. Any answers as to why this could have been. Do I need to fertilize etc.

I planted some lettuces cauliflower silverbeet and cabbage a few moths ago and pretty much all my lettuces have gone slimy and look rotten all the way through they look fine on the outside and the leaves on the other veges are going yellow would this be because of not enough room in the garden??

I planted new asparagus last year. Do I cut last years old ferns off? New asparagus are coming through now. Do I cut them off too and wait for the new ones in Spring? What do I feed the plants now and also do I put sheep pellets round them? Can the new spears be used and eaten this year or do I have to wait another year or so?
Thank you for your advice in advance.
Regards
Sue

What is the difference between compost and garden mix, I need to fill a rose garden which I will add some vegetables to in places and I have read compost can be too strong for some plants to be directly planted into?
