Hello dwarf and welcome to the forum I don't know about the slime on your lettuces except that they might be rotting down a bit, separate the leaves and wash well, you may be able to salvage something edible.  Garden produce is never as pristine as shop stuff, but then we tend not to use the chemicals that their farmers use to have a commercially viable crop.

The peppers in Yorkshire where you are, I would put into 8 inch pots and keep them in the green house, or a sheltered sunny part of the garden, make sure they do not dry out. I start feeding mine tomato food when they are flowering. Other gardeners may do it differently.

Good luck with it and keep us posted

Is it alright to have several stars?

I have a Master Composter event at Hunstanton allotments on 10/8, which I am really looking forward to as I adore allotments. I think the forumatti gang should go if that is the only date available to you; I can always go to Beth Chatto's at a later date.

SuperN, will look that up, I think James Wong is the guy who promotes 'grow your own medicine'.

I don't have many this year either.

Large plant needed for balcony, help appreciated!

Welcome Ben, I don't know what part of London you are in, but Clifton Nurseries in Maida Vale, Petersham Nursery in Sheen area or the one next to Turnham Green Tube Station would all have a selection of plants and pots; if weight is an issue, suggest that you get a plastic/fibreglass pot, they can look really good these days. If you make too specific a choice right now, you may run the risk of not being able to get it by Saturday.

What can I have thats large instead of troughs at the front of a house! Help

I have just had timber delivered free from a nearby merchant for a project. Some pieces are over 4m long, so less wastage..

Paul, are you worried about visitors driving through your door? Or other road users? If it is visitors on your drive, you could just paint a few large stones/pots white so that they see them.

There is a house not far from me; I think they have rebuilt their front wall 5 or 6 times in the last 13 years. Drivers (I'm thinking of drivers who have had a drink and perhaps 'borrowed' a car) do not realise there is a T junction there and just drive straight into their front wall. The latest reconstruction had big steel girders within the brick. This may sound harsh, but their house is only a metre or so behind the wall. Who wants a drunk uninsured driver in their sitting room?

This house now has a load of small reflective arrows on their wall pointing in the correct direction. Hope this helps.
