My seedlings are damping off because it's so damp even in the greenhouse and short of putting the heater on I don't know what to do to help things - all the windowsills indoors are already full

Morning, HappyByker...damping-off is as a result of lack of ventilation, so I'm not sure a heater would help much.

Here in the Midlands..light showers & sunny spells this morning, which is a big improvement on yeserday's stair rods all day.

Wet, wet, wet - northeast.

Teesside, when we did get it early evening yesterday it was a full blown storm, the rain was running down the windows like a power shower which it probably was.
Today raining when I put the bin out although it is now barely a drizzle and brightening as I write.
HappyByker David is right, my greenhouse is open to allow some air to circulate closing it down and putting heat on will not help now.

Morning all. East Dorset very windy - nearly blew my little dog inside out! Lots of red flood warnings all along the Rivers Stour and Avon. Rain overnight, I think, but not yet this morning.

Back to the sunshine and showers here in Southampton

South-East Inland: very windy here, but at least there's no rain.

East Midlands is sunshine and showers today. An improvement on yesterday's deluge. Brenda

North Lanarkshire,  cold heavy rain with hail stones!

Sunshine and showers in Somerset - a bit more sun than shower, for once.  Very soggy underfoot, though.

Rain,  rain and more rain,  the ground can't take any more so it's just laying on the top now,  in one spot the grass is under water much like this,  this was taken last year and it's not far short of it now,  no flowers yet like this they are all still in the gh waiting to be pricked out.  I have a Blackbird that has sort of claimed the garden as his own have called him Charlie as he's a cheecky little thing ,  he was having a bath in the water this morning,  it was so nice just watching him splashing around.

I pity your flood Rainjustlearning!

I have a nesting pair of Blackbirds in my Ivy, right above my kitchen window. I'm so happy about that

Kirkcaldy, East central Scotland. Heavy showers,breezy and chilly! Lovely weather- not!

Wintersong - had blackbirds in the ivy on the wall opposite my kitchen window a few years ago - lovely to watch - until one of the nestlings fell into the 'water feature' below- have felt guilty ever since Weather here in Chester persistent to say the least, which is why I'm on here instead of out there.

Rain, rain and rain in North Yorks.

Borders looking like Rain's, too, and part of the lawn - the ground is saturated, and local rivers breaking their banks.
