I have started to grow some cosmos and zinnia in heated propagator,the leaves have gone mushy and they are wilting. How do I stop this from happening to my other seeds?

If you are getting rid rather than moving then advertise for someone to have it free of charge on the condition that they remove it.

Freecycle is a website that you can advertise this on,or preloved or gumtree,free of charge.

I am going to buy a growing light with reflector for my small outbuilding room. I've not used one before,so any advice would be gratefully received. I am planning on using a timer and grow flowers in there with an oil radiator for warmth.

I bought some lovely chrysanthemum cut flowers and they've started rooting! I've changed  the water regularly,but other than that what can I do to keep these going and eventually put them in the garden.

I did this trying to dig up a 7 foot (triffid) cardoon.

I need a new fork,what make is best and what is the best value?

Buy cheap,you buy twice!

Thanks. I might  pull it up as it is blocking my view of prettier plants. I am always chopping and changing my garden.

I thought I grew this but it is starting to look like a weed,I am going on holiday for two weeks and I don't want it self seeding while I am away.

On an another note I am annoyed as I am going to miss some of my agapanthus coming into flower.
