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.

Use the school community board or newsletter to help get small pots  and any extra plants, seeds etc recycled to the school. RHS encourage a parent day in October (usually) we got some parents in to put together raised planters and shift compost etc. I'm in greater London - Essex and although I didn't get much response at first I am now known as 'the garden lady' and get reports of who pulled off daffodil heads, pinched strawberries and have a watering team at lunch times.

I am also constantly asked by staff and parents for advice about all manner of gardening concerns....
