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?

The leaves on our potato plants are starting to wilt and turning yellow. I suspect leaf roll virus. Is there anything we can do now or is it too late and what can do we do in the future to help prevent this. The potatoes are an early variety and should have been ready for xmas.

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.

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

I have accidentally pulled out a crown pumpkin too early. Can it still ripen with the stalk on? Shall I leave it in the sun or in a shaded place? It is the size of a small soccer ball and mostly grey with one area of darker greeny grey.
