I'm just glad to read of Happy News! It makes a change from the terrible things in the paper each day.

Thank you Runnybesk for your reply. I will now feel optimistic about them and pot them on with enthusiasm! 

Problem with cats

The only sure way of protecting your seedlings is a bit expensive I'm sorry to say. I purchased some protective netting tunnels and find them useful for protecting things from pigeons as well as cats. Once purchased you can re-use them for ever, so they are worth it in the end.

I have just bought some Cossack tomato plants from a local grower and have never grown that variety before. I wondered if anyone on the forum has any experience of this type?

Which weeds do you tolerate

I leave a few Herb Robert as they are so pretty. The draw back is that they seed around like mad and I have to weed out most of them. I would always leave the Forget-me-Nots as I love them and my mum gave me mine many years ago.

I live in a bungalow that is built on what was previously a farmhouse. So far we have found a horseshoe, an old clay pipe, a farm gate hinge and a blue Victorian brick.this makes me wonder about the lives of the people who lived and worked on this land. What have you unearthed on your patch of ground?

Can anyone identify this plant for me?

I think you all have solved the mystery for me ! It makes sense to me that my plant is a runner from the plant in the adjoining garden which backs onto mine.Judith's plant looks exactly like mine. I will be kind to it now and move it to a better situation. Thanks all!
