She has this almond tree which is struggling and she wonders if it is because her soil seems to be mostly acidic.
I have problems with my greenhouse container grown (from seed) cucumbers. The plants sort of shriveled up when transplanted from the seed tray and while not dead are very sick looking, mottled crisp leaves and very slow growth. I had this trouble last year as well so this year tried using growbags but the problem has recurred. A plant I bought from a garden centre has thrived, healthy leaves and lots of flowers but the fruit are growing to about 1 inch and stopping there.
I have green fly problem for a few month's now in the glass house, I think i did'nt spray enough times to get rid of them.. I think my peppers and chillies will not produce any fruit now because they are all over the flowers.... But yesterday a hoverfly got in and starting to lay egg's every where the green fly are... How long will it take the eggs to turn to larvae and would it be possible that they would eat all the green fly..

Can you recommend a spray for the leaves, i think it is magnesium deficiency. Also can you recommend a compost or fertilizer to mix in to prevent this problem in future.
