Good greenhouse hygiene is important. Sweeping up of leaves, etc when you have finished tidying also helps. If there are alot of badly affected leaves, etc it is better to burn or bin them rather than put them on the compost heap.

You've probably heard me go on about the Approved Food website before. I get a delivery from there once a month, what we get varies on what they have in stock.On average I save at least half on the RRP, so an order that would have cost £100 can cost £40 to £60 depending on what I order. A lot of the products are past date but an awful lot are dated this year or longer and those are the ones I buy. There are a lot of case / outer products vastly reduced and if they will keep and we will use them, I quite often buy those.
Our delivery this month included a massive tin of Mandarins, 2500g of them, reduced from £7.50 to £2.98. I will be putting them in jellies and several puddings.
