Hello all. This I was given six sunflower plants which have done well but are now looking very sad. Despite watering the leaves have turned browny yellow and have crisped up due to the hot sun. I want to feed the seeds to the birds in the winter but I remember having the same idea years ago and I hung the heads up in my garden shed to dry but they just went mouldy and nasty.  Any suggestions please?

Hi everyone,
I'm new here. I'm fairly new to gardening, I've done a bit here and there, however I've recently moved to west Cornwall and have a small garden.  I want to start growing veg and salad etc.  My garden is south facing but is in shade a lot of the day due to a neighbours big tree. I was looking at those cheap polytunnels for under 100 but wondered if they were any good?  The other option is a used greenhouse from marketplace.  Then I got to wondering do I need one, would it be beneficial?  Would growing in pots and raised beds be sufficient?  I would be grateful for any advice. Thank you.

Not sure the variety, but my chilli plants have been doing well and the fruits are about 1cm.  I keep them outside in pots with a straw mulch and lightly water them every other day...but they are beginning to wilt in the recent temperature which is only going to get hotter.  I have read that a stressed out chilli produces hotter fruit but I don't want to push them over the edge so have put them in the shade.  Should I have left them in the full sun?  Thanks for all the advice

Next book is on its way to the printers. Will put in a link once it is up on Amazon.
