That's the one I use. I went and looked at the bottle but never got round to re-posting.

Lighting in the Hall is Sodium flare so makes the flower colours hard to capture.

Our species Tulips are flowering. The badger ate all the others though, so none for us this year.

I use a Winter Wash based on Horticultural soft soap. Cannot remember the name . It seems to be on sale almost everywhere.

Friend or foe?

Looks very much like Geranium robertianum, aka Herb Robert.  It is a very pretty native wild flower which can become a bit of a seed weed if happy.

Ever been had ??

That is about the normal price for a G. Blewberry Tart, There were some on sale yesterday at the Loughborough AGS show, a single bulb in a pot for £10.

Sorry, but had you ain't been.

Not easily, no. There are scented compounds sold to water on to keep vermin away, but I have never used them so no recommendations to make.

Sow thinly, water from below and if you can get hold of some Copper sulphate water with that. If not then try gently dusting the soil surface with a little powdered cinnamon.

Squirrel or mice. They are the usual culprits. Try putting wire mesh across the top of the pots,just below soil level, so you cannot see it.
