Could they be black keel slugs or Milax slugs? They live in the earth and eat roots, especially potatoes. They are most active in the autumn. Here is a bit about them.

Jasmine

Jasmine likes a sheltered place against a wall, it likes sun too. Now is OK to plant so it can get settled in before it gets cold. Here is the RHS page about Jasmine.

It is definitely time to repot into bigger pots.

My OH came from a Yorkshire mining family, but he won a scholarship and got a degree in physics and another in something to do with computers. He had a very successful career, now retired.

I know it's not real, it's fiction, but it's based on history. It's a good story and the people seem real. Lots of awful things happened in history and are still happening today, but so did good things. Does that mean we shouldn't watch programmes like "The Tudors" or "The White Queen" or "Downton Abbey"?

Thank you , Zoomer. I'd never heard of the Savill garden, so I've been looking it up. It's part of Windsor Great Park and it looks lovely. Here is a Google pic.

You have obviously never watched it. Now I know my place (along with over 10 million others I think I'll stick to gardening threads in future.

Glad you are going to ring the doc tomorrow, Stacey. Don't put it off. I went to Corfu for my Honeymoon in 1973. It was super.

What pretty tulips in the above photo.

Watched Downton Abbey tonight. Love it.

What did I do wrong? My bit (above) is included in the quote. Should have a blue background.

Heather, I only use Roma for making tomato sauce. I fry onions, peel the Romas, add to the onions and cook until a thick sauce. Then I freeze it in small plastic bags and ice cube trays to use in dishes for winter. My Roma are fleshy, not watery and don't have many seeds.
