Hello Hill Crest and welcome to the forum

Go ahead, tell us about your garden and your plans ... if you can post photos that would be good.

To post a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  Sometimes it takes a while to load.  If it doesn't work, let us know

What are these things?

They wouldn't - they'd spread things around - Pansyface is right - nasturtium seeds

Have jays or squirrels been burying peanuts in your raised bed?

Like this


 but keep yours in their pots so you can take them indoors at night in case of frosts.

Marc - believe me, the strength of light received through a window is totally different to light received by a plant outside.  Even in a greenhouse plants don't get as much light as those outside. 

Get some large clear plastic water/lemonade bottles.  Cut the bases off and take the caps off (you can drink the water/lemonade if you wish )

Put the plants outside and put the bottles over them like cloches - that'll protect them from the wind and slugs and they'll grow strong and sturdy.

But I'm not going to sow mine until the end of April.

Hello Pamela and welcome

Crocus will have some Golden Hop available in the summer - you can ask them to email you when it's available http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/humulus-lupulus-aureus/classid.1664o/

My guess is that the Gooseberry saw fly has got to your gooseberry bushes and stripped the leaves https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=517

Maybe the birds then took the fruit?

It's tough being a gardener

What the hellebores is going on?

Mine have been gorgeous too - and some have been flowering since around Christmas - and I've seen some great displays elsewhere in this region as well.

Are you paying a price for having an even milder winter than usual in Cornwall?
