Wild about wildflowers (less so about leaf miners)
Thanks to the wettest drought on record, I've come home after a week on holiday to find my trough of wildflowers in bloom. The first of the blue cornflowers - my favourite - is out. Just lovely.
The loganberries, which I never thought would grow on my shady balcony, are reddening up nicely, too.
Not that everything in the balcony garden is rosy. In the space of a week, the chard's been decimated by leaf miners. Anyone got any quicky tips on how to deal with the little buggers?
