Hi, I must say the seed and potting compost I have bought this year to start my seedlings off has been very bad......germination slow and weak and that goes for anything potted on.....anyone had the same problem?

I was successful this season with growing young salad veg in a new veg trig. I have now discovered vine weevil in the compost. Will they die over winter and not return or will I need to get rid of all the compost and get new compost.  If I get rid of the compost should I take it to the tip and not use it anywhere else?.

Hi,

anyone know why I have tiny flys in the compost of some plants I am keeping over winter in my house? When I water you can see them wriggle and take to the air !!!

I have just received my bulbs and wonder why I can't plant tulips now with the others and why I should wait until October to plant them .

TA nothing else has been eaten and I grew the lettuce from seed. The leaves have been left but roots all gone.  I never bother growing cyclamen because they always get eaten but none of my other veg in my main veg plot have had the same issue. They are nasty little things Do they have a purpose other than to eat my grub.
