Hello everybody.  Am making list of comments.  Its nice to get so much info.  Have looked at some models and they can be quite expensive so don't want to make a mistake buying the wrong product.  Many thanks.

Thanks everyone.  As you all seem happy with Karcher will do a bit of research to see which one will suit.  Hubby has B&Q card so  might be worth a look there.  Am fed up scrubbing paths with yard broom its HARD WORK!!

Thanks again.  Have a good afternoon.

Am thinking of buying a jet washer to wash slippery paths and driveway.  Has anyone any experience or advice on the best make etc. 

Thanks

 

 

 

Unidentified creepy crawlies in my pots!

Hello leeph

From your description I think they might be springtails.  Have found them in my garden, there seem to be more than usual this year.  They like damp places and feed on decaying matter and fungi so don't think they will harm plants.  I would'nt like them indoors though so maybe you should repot your plants.  Hope this helps!

COMPETITIONS

Yes me! I won two tickets to BBC Gardeners World Live .  Enter competitions all the time never win so was so supprised.  Had a lovely day.  Also a dozen foxgloves arrived, never ordered them so assume I entered a comp. that I had forgotten about!

I think that maybe they are included in the seed mix because like cosmos they are good bee plants.

Hello panda762.  It looks like godetia which is an annual. 

PLANT IDENTITY

Posted: 21/07/2013 at 16:07

The plant is Oxalis and yes they do spread like wildfire but this one called Iron Cross seems to be very well behaved in my garden.  Keep it in the pot for now and see how it goes.  It will have pink flowers later on, if you like keep if not ditch!  I have another type which has all green leaves and pinky/lilac flowers, pretty but also pretty invasive.  Its a pain, it was in the garden when we moved here 20 years ago and I am still trying to eradicate it!
