Join me for a live online eco gardening Q&A session on The Guardian’s gardening blog, Thursday 31 May at 1pm

I’ll be live online for an hour or so from 1300 BST/0800 EDT on Thursday 31 May 2012, to try and answer questions, large and small, about any aspect of greener, more ecologically sound and planet-friendly gardening. This is your chance to join the virtual audience for a Eco GQT – an Ecological Gardeners’ Question Time. I can promise to give answers that are high in earth-friendliness, but low on celebrity froth and giggling.

Welsh poppy (Meconopsis cambrica) provides valuable early supplies of pollen and nectar for early-flying bumblebees and honey bees.

The spring flowers of Welsh poppy (Meconopsis cambrica) are an early source of nectar and pollen for adult hoverflies, who lay their many eggs among aphid colonies.

Perhaps you’re looking for a peat-free compost that performs reliably and well, you’re wondering what’s a greener approach to slug and snail control, or you’re confused about different ways of making compost in your garden?

If you’re looking for simple ways to trim your ‘gardening footprint’, trying to figure out how you can harvest and save more rainwater on your plot, or you’re wondering what the best plants to encourage beneficial, pest-controlling insects into your garden are, I’ll try to help.

You can post questions live during the hour, starting at 1300 on 31 May, or if you can’t join me then, why not post your question in advance? Please include as much detail as possible with your question (for example, if it’s a query about growing plants, please tell me where your garden is, what kind of soil you have … plus other useful details).

See you then.
