I think they are called pollen beetles I had them last year if you shake the flowers outdoors to get rid of them you should be ok

Thanks for all the info

Some of the seeds were in a propagator some just on the shelf in a potting shed some of the latter were the ones that have germinated.

I am in the NE and the weather has been warm for the last week or so

Has anyone had trouble with sweetcorn this year?

I have planted two packets of seed from different suppliers and different varieties in total about 70 seeds, these were planted in pots of compost but I have only got 7 plants when i check the other seed they appear swollen but are very soft to the touch.

Any Ideas please

Lifted onion sets

Posted: 26/04/2014 at 15:00

I have for the last few years started my onion sets off in deep plug trays in the greenhouse usually about the beginning of March then planting out at the end of the month.

Since doing this I do not get the bird problem
