Definitely no plastic Gosh, I seem to have suddenly lost most of the icons above where I am typing! I can only do a polite smile, not my usual hysterical grin

It is called I think a catch crop when you grow something fast growing around something slow growing; it is normal veg gardening practice.

Broccoli flowering?

Eat as much as you can, leave the plant in situ and it will carry on producing. Try to harvest the heads before they flower. Enjoy

I just foliar fed my plants first time.But..

I used to have a jade plant on my south facing window sill in London; it used to flower in hot summers. I fed it baby bio when I remembered (the bottle lasted 20 years, so probably not very often). When I moved to Norfolk it lived in the conservatory and flowered more often. I finally got fed up with it and put it by the gate with a large sign saying 'free house plant' and it went within a few hours

A while back I got some old fashioned wage packet envelopes; great for seed storage

Pleased to have a new garden visitor.

The worms may be stopped by the membrane. Busy L's advice is good. I had a problem area outside my fence, it was just weeds and I guess the land isn't really mine. The Council used to cut down the weeds once a year. So I dug out all the weeds, let it lie for a few weeks until more weeds came up and then sprayed with a not very nasty weedkiller that allows you to plant within a certain time. It has flourished with not much care; I tend to over - plant so that weeds do not get much space to thrive.

Steve, that's a lovely idea, but way beyond my technical skill Some friends have just given me a colour printer and I know it will take me a morning to set it up, with multiple use of rude words But give me an Ikea triple wardrobe to assemble and I'm in seventh heaven

Dove, the Robin has been following me around all day; getting to within 18" of me as I remove old pea and broad bean plants and hoe the soil. I really hope those robinettes have survived, but no one is returning to the nest, unless they get up earlier than I do
