How often do you buy seeds and it's NOT what the packet said?

Posted: 15/06/2014 at 16:25

I think it's unlikely that seeds of poisonous ornamentals would be packed in the same  processing plant as seeds of vegetables.  

Someone, somewhere will have done a risk assessment

I agree with Dave - sometimes plants by a fence can be in a 'rain shadow' and although there is rain, not enough of it falls close to the fence.

Gallup is a formulation designed for use by professionals - I've not used it.  Sorry. 

 I know it was recommended to you by someone who appears to no longer be posting on this board.  I hope there's someone else on here who can help you.

They look like a mustard-type leaf to me - often included in mixes of salad leaves, particularly ones with oriental-type leaves - usually ready to start using 3 weeks after sowing - use on a cut and come again basis .

Yours have just got way too big

Hi, Sorry Dove I am in Manchester, although I was born in Yarmouth.

Yay!  A Norfolk boy!  If you're planning to visit your birthplace you could always bring me some rocks! 

It does sound as if you have plenty of energy, and gardening is certainly cheaper than most gym memberships!

You're fine just posting on here about remodelling your garden, just as you are doing.

However, if you have any specific questions it's best to start a new thread with a descriptive title so that posters with specific areas of interest will see it.

David, how are they curling?  If the leaves are rolling in from the sides to the middle, so that the underneath surface of the leaf is showing, that is likely to be due to overwatering.  If this could be the case cut back on the watering and it should resolve.

If the leaves are curling downwards and the under-surface isn't showing, then that could be due to variations in night and day time temperatures, draughts, or sometimes it's just a tendency of the variety.  

There are lots of threads on here about tomatoes; just put tomatoes into the search facility and you'll get loads of information, but if you can't find what you need or it doesn't make sense to you, just ask

I once had a packet of dwarf french beans that turned out to be a climbing variety of borlotti beans - I contacted the seed company and they apologised and sent a voucher for a few packets of seeds.  

Mistakes do happen - I've made some in my life.  It's irritating but not the end of the world for me. 

Identifying Help!

Wow, well I think it deserves some tlc so it can grow up to be big and beautiful.  It does make you wonder how it grows - where's the chlorophyll?

No one's come back to me yet - I think they're all cooking their Sunday lunches - that's the thing with a Foodie Board - so many of them are either cooking or eating 

Suppose to be salad but..
