I am not new to gardening but new to this garden.
I planted 8 tomato plants of various types, got 4 red tomatoes, all the other hundred are green.
Planted new honeysuckle and it got powdery mildew, off the resident eleagnus which is covered in it. The honeysuckle was on the opposite side of my, admittedly small garden, and other plants like a phlox are covered in it too.
I planted 4 packets of sweet peas, all supposedly scented. Four plants only grew and they were all white and no fragrance but as I only got four flowers altogether it doesn’t matter.
Planted fine french beans x 3 varieties got two plants both black beans. Had maybe a kilo of beans altogether, which were delicious, but they are now smothered in black fly!
The only really nice flowers were on the ipomea but again planted three colours and only the red ones flowered, and that was at the end of August.
So I give up!
Next year I’m going to throw down a load of prairie flower seeds and leave them to it.
Oh and plus there’s no worms in my soil!
Hope you all have had better luck.
