I'm sure I should know what this is but it has me foxed.

Wonky - your garden is beautiful - and to think that this time last year it was just an overgrown mess. You should be very proud of yourself. im proud of you :-)

my clematis HF Young is flowering beautifully after a problem due to drought last year.

Keep your germs to yourself Wonky, and I'll do the same ((hugs)).  

I just finished the final potting on of the cordon tomatoes as the heavens opened here.  I've come indoors as OH doesn't think a person with Sniffles and Chestikoff should garden in the rain 

The bush tomato plants (the GW freebies) are on the table on the terrace waiting for their final pots - Wonky - I'll pot yours up for you and bring them when I deliver your pressies from Hosta - not until we're both germ-free 

Use of Mineral Oil to avoid Evaporation

I'd just give them a couple more centimetres of water and put them out of the sun.  They're pretty tough plants and in their native environment cope with fluctuating water levels.  

I don't like the idea of adding oil to water.  

Newly,planted seeds

I bought a roll of the smaller holed chicken netting (known in my old village as rabbit wire) and lay pieces of this on top of seedbeds.  Weight it down with stones or tie it down. It keeps the neighbour's cats off in this garden.

A bit blurry when I enlarge them, but they look like adult vine weevils.  Their grubs will be eating the roots of your potted plants, and primulas etc.  

Nematodes are the answer 

(other suppliers are available).
