HELLO FORKERS!

Yes Woody, if there's not a problem leave it alone - but a shallow dish of water left out would be good

I was reading the other day that because of hot dry weather some hedgehog sows are unable to find enough food and drink to make enough milk for their litters.  

Woody, have you got a Hedgehog rescue centre near you?

Some questions about Basil

Bolting means that a plant that is grown for its leaves, like a lettuce, puts up a flowering stalk.  It usually means that the plant is unusable.  

Of course, almost all plants will flower, but we've developed our vegetable varieties to delay this so that we can eat the leaves.  

However, if a plant is subjected to stress, e.g. lack of water, or if it's sown at the wrong time of the year, it will try to flower sooner than we want it to.

Hope that's clear - if not please say

Hi Warren and welcome   Sounds as if you really have been bitten by the gardening bug 

Whereabouts (roughly) in the country are you?  It always helps to know climate, soil etc when discussing our gardens.  I'm in East Anglia 

Anyone knows what is this yellow-leaf plant?

I can make the link work if I highlight it and then right-click - but I've no idea what it is.
