North Yorkshire

Eric Robson and the team meet gardeners from North Yorkshire. Bob Flowerdew, Christine Walkden and Matthew Biggs form the panel. In addition, Pippa Greenwood reports on human allergies to plants.

Questions answered in the programme:

What is a fool-proof method for growing melons?

My favourite Hosta ('Great Expectations') has started to send out plain, unvarigated leaves, is there anything I can do to stop this?

My apple tree seems to suffer from a pest that has a white cotton wool like substance with little black insects in. How can I get rid of this infestation or do I need to pull it out and replace it?

I planted a Yew hedge 3 years ago. The plants have grown 1- 1.5 ft but aren't bushing out - how can I encourage them to merge into one hedge?

What damage would a cockchafer grub do in my garden and was I right to kill it?

How can I revive my poorly Pyrcantha?
