The soil in my Glass House (unheated) is full of Oxalis (white flowered). I have tried repeatedly to sieve out the bulblets but the plants just seem to increase in quantity and vigour. What can I do to get rid of oxalis? The soil in the glasshouse is light and sandy. Should I revert to planting tomatoes etc in containers? I have bought lupin seeds as a mulch crop. Would they be good in the glass house?

I have bought pea straw to mulch my vegetable garden ie strawberries and scarlet runner beans. Should I put it round the plants now or in the spring? I do not quite understand what pea straw is for. I thought it was to suppress weeds and to keep the plants warmer through the winter.

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 have a mint plant purchased about 4 weeks ago and now it is looking miserable. It has gone all spindly and noticed it has a red brown tinge on the leaves. What is this and what do I do to get it back to its original look. I have it in a pot as I was told it spreads easily through the vegetable garden

My silverbeet is covered in what appears to be a white powder, which is probably some sort of mould. How can I get rid of this, and if I use seeds from these plants, is the disease likely to be passed on?

A number of my brassicas have quite large areas of exploded growth of the inner leaf cells which appear spongy. There are no visible caterpillars. The leaf surface over these areas is a thin white membrane. It appears to originate near veins.
