Green Chillies- Need Help

Hi Tanmay and welcome

Your chillies sound as if they're doing well.  This video will explain clearly about the flowers and pollination etc

I hope that helps

Good morning all   It's a very quiet and peaceful morning here - just the sound of woodpigeons cooing, an occasional fluttering of wings by the bird feeders and there's a large frog sitting in the pond looking wise and serene

Have a lovely adventure Panda

ID please - is this Toothwort?

 This photo was taken by a friend living in Correze, France.

Runnybeak - glad you enjoyed Tulip Fever - I'm enjoying Wolf Hall at the moment, and then I have Bring up the Bodies to follow that , but I might re-read Tulip Fever again soon - I think I've left it long enough

Thanks to everyone for their kind thoughts - it's just so strange to think he's not around any more

Matty, some exciting news!  We'll want photos, progress reports ... everything

I'm watching Rebecca with you, and when I've checked up on here I'll get the knitting out ...

What's pooping on my lawn?

Wood pigeon?

Think the same chemicals would work for both

What do you carry you hand tools around in?

They're usually in the back pockets of my gardening jeans ... hence occasional alarming crashing noises when visiting the downstairs cloakroom
