Your Gardening Questions & Answers 
Q. I’ve seen the most gorgeous shrub purely by chance on the internet. It’s a rare sub-shrub called Moltkia Suffruticosa and is usually grown in rock gardens.  I’d dearly love to get hold of one but need your help as I’m drawing a blank.

A. This lovely blue alpine rockery plant is one of our faves in the rockery and does well with ‘Forget-me-not’s’. A good plant nursery should stock these if not we’re sure they should order one in for you. Good Luck x

Q.  Throughout the year I am besieged by worms and maggots eating my beloved begonia tubers. How can I stop this?

A. Take the tubers out of the ground, save them and replant in a few months. Then plant in sandy soil. This can prevent them worms and maggots getting a nibble! Hope this helps x
Q. My Cyclamen leaves are going yellow and I don’t know why. Someone suggested it may be too much water or too little. What do you think?

A.  Charlie’s Tip of the Month: use an old lolly stick as your Dip Stick and check the dampness of soil. Let it draw water up from a saucer and let it get some fresh air too. Take the old yellow leaves off and let it produce new green leaves.
