Capillary Matting.

It doesn't make any difference. The wick is connected to the mat which should be underneath the plant pots. The wick will continue to saturate the matting as long as there is a supply of water to it. Everyhing else is irrelevant.

Weigela, I agree.

Cucumber or courgette?

It is a wait and see game then. All plants are looking healthy so hopefully it will remain that way and I'll be patient. Thanks to both of you for your tips.

Uncurl the leaves and check for aphids.

I would feed it and water it and wait. If it is a hibiscus it will not flower until August/September.

I have a Mountield. I have had it for several years and it goes well. If I were to buy again I think I might pay the extra for either a self propelled one or more likely a push start button because as a 'light weight lady'....I sometimes don't have enough oomph to pull start mine!

Cucumber or courgette?

My courgette and cucumber seedlings have got muddled up and I am blaming the cat! Is there any way of telling the difference? I have planted 3 in the green house and 2 outside to hedge my bets. All have buds on but no flowers yet. Any suggestions?

Oh also meant to say what about your local secondary school. Do they have a garden? You could make enquiries if any of the staff or pupils might like to mentor you and the younger children, swap plants or the like.
