No!  That'll make them leggy and fall over.  They need more light not less.

Beechgrove somehow manages to survive and flourish on garden content..... without gimmicks.

Balls to you, Nigel! 

I always feel that is it's 'gimmick' - Northern Plain Speaking, No Frills - nothing wrong with that of course, but that is its programme style which is as considered and planned as anything on GW. 

And some people prefer that and others prefer another style.  Just like some were Beatles fans and others preferred the Stones.  And then there was the Blur/Oasis thing.  And some watch Strictly whereas others watch the dancing on ice programme whatever it's called.

Thanks Flowers

Hosta, no I didn't - was it about how they treat the cocoa bean farmers?  I've read stuff about that.  The farm shop sells Fair Trade choc

The guff that gets poured out to promote programmes and do the voice-overs etc is all the same whatever programme/channel you watch.  I blame all those courses in Media Studies.  My brain filters that sort of stuff out and I really don't take it in.  OH says that in his experience male brains don't filter stuff out like that - it's either all or nothing with them.  Perhaps he's put his finger on it

I think they'll be fine Clari - just don't stress them by harvesting any - they'll survive like that until late autumn when hopefully their Forever Home will be ready
