      Why don't my cyclamen flower? They have abundant green healthy foliage but never seem to flower.

        A:

        Hi there
        There are a number of reasons why plants don't flower including too much shade or not enough water or nutrients. It can also be caused by the plant putting on new root growth instead of focusing its energies on producing flowers. I am not really sure why your Cyclamens are not flowering, but given time and the right conditions there is no reason why they won't flower. You can often give them a bit of a push by feeding during the growing season with a high potash fertiliser and applying a generous layer of mulch to conserve moisture.

    • Q:

      Discolouration on mint leaves?

      Hello Crocus!I hope you can help me identify a problem with my mint. I'm growing some herbs on my balcony, and recently I noticed something on my mint leaves. Patches of discolartion with dark spots in them. This morning, I noticed that it has spread to the spearmint and peppermints right next to it, and to the basil which is several feet away (but none of the plants between them). I'd like to know what it is, and how to treat it (pref. organic tratments) and if it is still safe to eat the leaves? Many thanks for your kind help.

        Hello There, This looks like the results of a sap sucking insect (probably aphids), so the best way to get rid of them is to either squash them (a bit unpleasant) or blast them off with a strong jet of water every time they appear.
