I was interested in a comment you posted suggesting the use of epsom salts. The live programme & the podcasts have blurred a bit but on a fairly recent GQT I remember an audience member being a fertiliser scientist who said, when asked by the board, what he was working on next & he said adding magnesium.
I've used aspirin on my toms over the last few years & am completely convinced that it helps against moulds &, of course, I've read the more dubious stuff about using bicarb to make toms sweeter, etc.
I'd really like to know, given your scientific background, what you think is useful/what is hokum when it comes to less well known gardening aids?
Apologies if you've already written a blog along these lines & I missed it☺


Bathgate you might be interested in this history of one of the cottages


Come to think of it I do give them a liquid feed when the leaves are there.

So sorry you had to let Star go, very brave and strong of you to do so. We are lucky enough to have had young kittens from rescue homes so we've always been able to keep them 'indoor cats'. They never miss what they never have and if you get really lucky and get two siblings they get plenty of exercise and company. We work from home which helps too. Never had dogs but those ones of yours look a real happy handful, bet there's never a dull moment!


Ha ha Waddy, I guess you’re right! x

It is, isn’t it Dawn, lucky me :)
