Carrots.

Most grateful for all the replys. I grow lots of carrots in boxes, including polystyrene boxes, particularly successful. My thoughts were regarding a late row in open ground for winter use. So I should be free of the fly, if they germinate ok.!

Does anyone know when it is safe to sow carrots to avoid the root fly?  I believe it to be July Is it safe now?

Agree with lazy gardener, go steady on the slug pellets, just a few around the plants. By the way, your beans will most likely regrow from the base, that is yet another benefit from runner beans.

It has long been a mystery to me why the majority of gardeners secure the canes at the top. Far better to cross them half way down, as this is so much stronger, and the beans grow more free.

Four swallows seen in Wilts and South Glos. Thrilling!

If only I had some photos to show you all! I have been watching a chaffinch collecting  dog hair, which I had combed from my golden retriever, in order to line her nest. She took so much in her beak that it appeared she had an enormous moustache!

Yes, I too would suggest layering. Also much more success with viticellas in general.

I am puzzled by the regular appearence of four robins on the bird table. This is March, and I would have thought by now they would have become territorial. I was expecting there to be just a pair, hopefully nesting in our garden. What do you all think?

I wonder what the general opinions are regarding the decision to allow garden gnomes at Chelsea. I was shocked, for I think they are hideous.

Such a delight to see a goldcrest suddenly hop near my feet, while I was waiting for a bus, near Bath.
