Philippa, thank you. Will just leave them on the concrete bit as he still has not got back to me; perhaps on his hols.

How old are your gardens

Frank, i agree

Neglected mainly herbaceous border - help needed please

I would try to weed as much as possible now, to avoid them setting seed. Label everything so even things that have died down by the Autumn, you will recognise. Then tackle it Sept to mid Oct. But do try to control the weeds and the ivy.

Dig in loads of well rotted manure/compost before re-planting.

You could start planning now how you are going to re-position everything. Palais Glide (Frank) mentioned that he has moved many of his plants lots of times

...and Parsnip seeds should be pretty fresh, apparently they don't keep, though have never grown them.

Whoops, newboy; you may not have left it long enough, but that only means that you won't win 'Best in Show' at your local veg show. They will be interesting shapes as they try to avoid large bits in the soil - if you have children, they will find them funny

About the poor germination, I have found my carrots under-performing this year, don't know why; had to re-seed 3 large pots..

no worms

Wormless, does the earth actually produce good plants?

I'm taking 12 crates of plants down to Somerset tomorrow; am in slight panic, as can't reach Andrew who seems to run the plant creche. But hopefully, as it's a farmyard (?) I can just leave them there. Philippa tells me that it is obvious where to leave them.

Clarington, I don't think any particular person would know all the efforts that are going on, and I guess that sometimes several days go by without much happening. We all, I think, keep bumping the thread so that it does not get lost in the byzantine catacombs of old threads, since there may well be new members of the Forum who are interested in helping.

Now I'm waiting for the rain to stop so I can fill all these crates...will take pics...amazing what can be fitted into an Astra
