Nasturtiums Flowering In Vegetable Garden

I recently planted some nasturtium seeds purchased for a mere 19p, a bargain. I was delighted when the seeds germinated and produced lovely plants with beautiful flowers. The nasturtiums are now flowering and they provide a splash of colour in the veg garden.

New Leaves On Bay Tree – Green Thumb Sunday

Back in October my bay tree wasn’t looking very good and after consulting TopVeg for an online consultation via skype, I planted my bay tree in a sunny spot that was sheltered from the wind.

I am thrilled to say that the bay tree has new leaf growth on it, so I will be able to enjoy using fresh bay leaves from the garden very soon. So thanks TopVeg for your excellent advice. I will certainly be consulting you again.

If you have a vegetable or herb gardening question then contact TopVeg and if you’re feeling adventurous then you can book your online consultation and feature in a TopVeg podcast.

Bay Tree Problems

My bay tree has not been looking very good recently and I wondered what I should do.

Then I remembered that TopVeg was running a herb event, so as part of TopVeg’s herb day event last week, I contacted TopVeg via skype for an online consultation.

TopVeg listened to the problems I had with my bay tree;

  • Some leaves are green and have black spots.
  • Some leaves are yellowing with black spots.
  • Some leaves are partially brown or completely brown.
  • Some leaves are dropping off.

Growing Cress

I am having a go at growing cress because would you believe it, I’ve never grown it before and my husband and I have started to buy quite a bit of it to put on our salads.

I am following the cress growing advice from Top Veg, which as always is clear and easy to follow. Thanks Top Veg!

I have put dampened kitchen roll onto a plate and sprinkled some cress seeds on top. Now I will wait for the cress seeds to germinate and soon I hope to be harvesting lovely homegrown cress. Well that is if I remember to keep the kitchen roll moist!
