Brilliant, Mr J....well spotted.

Soil for my young seedlings

The deciding actor for me, would be that your 'soil' will probably not be sterile....leading to all sorts of post-transplanting problems. Sterilization eliminates fungi, bacterial diseases and destructive bugs that may be in the soil.

Would recommend a multipurpose compost at this stage, or (as has already suggested) JI No 1.

DD - I've checked with 'Vision Express' and they assure me they would be able to accommodate your needs.

Vision Express used to offer specs made within an hour, not sure this service still exists or would include offers. However, they have branches all over the UK, so may be worth thinking about.

GD - You may be interested to know that I was speaking to the owner of Eagle Sweet Peas yesterday and I mentioned the problem of your 'purple' plants......he too was fairly sure they would recover. However, due to your location, he wondered if salty winds may be a factor....also lack of nitrogen.

Regarding the latter, a foliar spray of liquid seaweed would be helpful.

Mister / sprayer - recommendation sought

For the job in hand, I see nothing wrong with a Wilcos one, costing around 85p.

So sorry, Guernsey Donkey....I did think after posting, it may be a tad hurtful and insensitive. In my defence I have to say, tried to make people aware of this issue many times to what I think as tedium at times.

Again sorry,  they'll be fine and another lesson learned, eh?
