 Pricked mine out into modules today - planted them nice and deep so they're not long and lanky any more

They look absolutely fine to me - they're just leaning towards the light.  I've been turning mine around twice a day to get them to grow straight.

Just run the lawnmower over them.  The seedlings won't grow after you've chopped their tops off.

It's a shame that it's taken so long - but please accept plenty of help - that way you can enjoy the time you have left with your father and not have to be his fulltime carer too

I like it - it's very useful to provide a bit of colour in the shade.

If it's happy there it's possibly not quite the right place for a rose?  Scarlet Queen Elizabeth is a floribunda - they'll put up  with a little shade, but will do much better in a sunny spot.

Few Id's please

Yes, Honesty is much happier if you just throw some seeds in a corner of the garden and leave them to it

Don't know which euphorbias you've got - someone else will probably know.

I'll do the easy one - the lovely lilac flower is purple Honesty Lunaria annua - the one that has the lovely circular  transparent seedheads in the autumn

Pdoc - what a lovely garden you must have ... a pair of dippers and a song thrush family on its way - very very envious.

I've just spent a lovely couple of hours pricking out the tomatoes and cosmos seedlings, taking salvia cuttings and sowing sweetcorn and pattypan squashes. 

The tomatoes and cosmos are in the little greenhouse - will I be brave enough to leave them out there overnight, or shall I bring them in and put them on the dining table overnight  ?  ..................... just checked the Met Office website - I'll bring them indoors for the next few nights - the temp's going to drop to 1C tomorrow night - then things are going to be a bit milder after that. 

I also pulled nearly 2.5 kilos of rhubarb from my one plant  - and I still left one third on the plant ... it's in a big dish in the oven with some sugar and covered with foil.  Some of it will be for breakfasts next week, and some will go into a Rhubarb and Custard Cake
