Hi, I've always used a long handled muck fork, by Bulldog......will last for years.

Btw, ash handles are best.

 

Sweet Pea Know How

Aster - sweet peas don't like root disturbance, so if your existing pots will mange for a little while longer, I wouldn't.

I've never 'potted-on' any of mine, I make sure they have pots with adequate depth to last until planting out time, when I sow the seed.  

Woodchip as snail control

Not sure woodchip would have the desired effect, but have used pine needles with some success,

I must say that living near a pine forest helps for me.

Thanks for the update, Fairy.

Was it originally  in colour then?', not this time, I shot it in monochrome and post processed it into sepia.

More wonderful pics, Fairy. I can now well understand their therapeutic value......if only my own local medicine were so sweet.

I think worth remembering that these plastic greenhouses get very hot on moderately sunny days, so on such days perhaps just put them in there overnight.

Hi, Wonkey.....they need transferring to somewhere cool, asp....a coldframe, mini-plastic greenhouse etc.

PS. Don't give up on those who haven't surfaced yet.

Footnote to the 'Painted Lady' sweet pea.....anyone notice it's the same colour as the flowers on the old Victorian runner bean of the same name?......Need to find the significance of that.
