Good advice, I've brushed the slugs off and will try and remove the mud when it's dried

Can I ask if both sets of seed came from the same place?

There were mice in the garage at one point and we don't want them back! I tend to use the pantry which is a little better. Thanks, I'll bring them in when I can.

Thanks! The Leymus does look good, I may have a go at growing it from seed.

The foliage is all laid down, mostly brown but some green remaining. The weather for the rest of the week is decidedly monsoon-like, and I won't be around to harvest next week. The only space I have for drying/storage is in the house. What would you do?

If I had loads of time and skill i'd make something as anything I can afford will no doubt be overpriced and on the flimsier side.

Looking for a grass species to use in a seashore themed container garden, ideally good for wildlife and providing year round interest of some sort. Any ideas?

Thanks! Is yours real glass? It's a relatively sheltered garden though the fence panels can move a bit when it's really windy.

Our plastic mini greenhouse was damaged in high winds so we're thinking of getting one of these. It will be on a patio against a fence- will it still be vulnerable to wind, and will it need fixing down?
