Wot, no basil!

I like greek basil too Chicky - and it seems more able to cope with our climate

Good morning Chicky and everyone as you arrive   G'day Pat

You're right Panda, I was sound asleep when you said that! 

Chicky - I'm ignoring the weather forecast too - and even if it pours with rain all weekend I shall spread newspaper over the dining table and sow seeds - that's gardening

I usually see plenty of pots of basil seedlings in our local garden centre, but much later on, when they're also selling the tender bedding plants - not now - far too early.

Pest or not?

The sound to me like slow release fertiliser capsules which are routinely added to a lot of multi-purpose composts.  Nothing to worry about.

Are these weeds?

It may spread a bit, but it's a pretty garden plant and is easily removed if it grows where you don't want it.

It's certainly not one to worry about

I do the same as Lyn - I pinch out the tops (and steam and serve with butter) when the first bean pods have set.

Grannybee - are you saying that you had a look at this thread http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/problem-solving/tulip-growing-problem/937483.html

and that you have "the same problem"?

Please read the thread

It is not a problem - they are meant to be like that - they are dwarf hybrid tulips

Have had phone calls from the Lovely Home and Bro - the doc thinks she's dehydrated due to the tummy troubles - it's always difficult to get her to drink enough as she worries about inco...........   well, you know what.   and she can be very stubborn.

She's on Dioralyte and they're keeping a fluids chart  - Bro says she does look poorly, but I'm sure she'll perk up when they get her fluid levels up  - I had already planned to see her tomorrow so I'll go and take her some flowers.  No point in chocolate eggs if her tummy is already upset.
