this year is a bloody nightmare..just looking around my brassicas there and many have flopped over..so i dug them up..and around each plant was 1 or 2 leather jackets..i,ve not had this problem in the past..im convinced im bringing the pests in via bagged manure from the local garden centre. its the same with weeds...think i,ll be changing product for next year. hope i get a few cabbages this year..very dissapointing start.

My new greenhouse is quite full now too, 4 varieties of Tomatoes, Peppers, Courgettes etc. plus all 'HER' bedding plants. The photo was taken today, lots of flowers on the tomatoes,

Everything is doing great in the greenhouse, however outdoors the spuds, legumes, onions, cabbage, broccoli are moving very slowly. I would be very depressed now if I hadn't built the new greenhouse to replace the old ALDI plastic greenhouse that blew away.

Don't listen to Greenage Nozebleed, he/she just has a case of Tomatoe Envy.

You should keep the thread going FOREVER!

i love checking in on your page nosebleed dont stop please.with regard to your manure problem some garden centres carry stock over from the previous season and if it has been lying out on a pallet all winter i think it will harbour undesireables

Why would someone complain about a thread being boring?? Its easy, if you're not interested don't read it! I also like getting the updates from you, Nozebleed, and others on the progress...keep it up!

Leather jackets seem to be in plague proportions this year. Thought I was the only one with the problem but apparently it's down to the damp-not-so-cold-winter-that-never-really-happened. They've munched through the stems of my lettuces so far. They dont seem bothered with peas or spring onions. Starting to worry about my brassicas though. Searched google but not much info, apart from digging out by hand.

Anyone know of any chemicals that work? And where to buy them? I'll go crazy if they eat anymore crops.

Ah so that explains why my lettuces are just dropping dead! Did have a poke around but couldnt find anything in the soil.
But more than that it's greenfly for me this year, at home and at the plot. Some things are thick with them!
Sorry for the offtopic Smile

All the hard work building my greenhouse looks like it's going to pay-off.
