There are a number of flowers setting but the leaves of my lebanese cucumber are covered with brown pustules. I’ve been careful in growing them and have had success in the past. What is the problem?

I have had some Jersey Bennies certified seed potatoes chitting since early July. I put them outside in the light but not direct sunlight. They eventually grew dark sprouts about 1cm long, but these have not grown noticeably for about the last month. Why aren’t they sprouting a bit more enthusiastically? When should I plant them?

My tunnel house is overgrown with oxalis. I have been trying to get rid of it for over a year but it is worse than every. I was going to replace the soil but not sure if this is the correct option. Any advice gratefully accepted.
Thanks

Hi
I might be expecting life too early. I left the rhubarb in the garden from last year (actually a half wine cask and am a little concerned that there is no sign of life.
Am I little early or should I start again

thanks

I saw on the Internet that you should put Neem granules in the soil when planting potatoes. Some shops have removed this product as they say it has something harmful in it.Please advise.

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

I have some leek plants that have not grown much in the 4-5 months they have been in the garden. Can I pull them out and use them like spring onions?

Yates’ website states that copper oxychloride can be sprayed on vegetables at ’14 day intervals’. Should I take this as meaning it can be applied fortnightly all year round even when harvesting? And is this for all vegetables. I am mainly asking about brassicas.

thank you
