Thank you all for your responses.  It actually wasn't made clear at the time of purchase it doesn't even mention it on the package!! wow, annoying! I guess I won't be doing that now as in about a year or so I'll be moving to NL, so I don't see much point, they were not expensive but maybe I should have read about doing it before purchasing. I feel pretty gutted now .

Hi,

I purchased some asparagus bulb so I could grow my own asparagus but on the back it advises to use loam soil, I was just wondering if using this is absolutely necessary I use Verve multipurpose compost for my pots and grow beds because the house I rent doesn't have any soil in the back garden, it's just stones so we made my own beds.

Thanks,

Cat

Ohh that is interesting, Edd, Well at least I know this for the future now. It is already in the bin but I will get another one and because it was so big when I bought it I will separate it right away and put it outside so it can enjoy the weather, Up North here right now it still seems early to put crops out but will my herbs survive?

Thank-you Dovefromabove. That first picture you sent is exactly what they looked like, I was nearly sick because of what my boyfriend originally said ha-ha! I feel rather silly now for wasting the herb , but at least I have learned something from this, they were inside on my kitchen window sill, the bottom of it was really wet so I guess that is what was killing it.  Thank-you again for your advice, it is greatly appreciated.

Hey all,

 

Firstly I apologize if this is in the wrong topic,

 

About a month back I purchased a Oregano plant that had plenty of leaves on them from Wilkinsons and today I decided that I would split it and put them in to a much bigger pot as it seemed to be dying possibly due to lack of space. When my partner was splitting the roots and dirt in half we saw loads of yellow balls in between the roots and when he squished one, white fluid came out. Does anyone know what these would be??? My partner thought maybe spider eggs or something, we put it in the bin to be on the safe side, it was practically dead but I thought maybe it would be the seeds but I am new to this so I am coming here for advice.

 

Thank-you, Cat

Okay, thank-you all for your advice, which I have taken on. I still have more carrot seeds so I think I will wait a little longer to sow them.

Hi,

I am new to the gardening scene, I have started sowing various vegetables but I need some advice regarding carrots, they have come up but some are tall but some have flopped down. Since the weather is still bad here they are in a trough in the kitchen, am I doing something wrong?  All advice would be greatly appreciated

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

I have started sowing, baby tomatoes, Thyme, Basil, Alicante tomatoes, cucumber and strawberry's and carrots. I am thinking of planting onions and courgette soon.
