Those are ash tree seedlings - get them out - dig them out - before  you're living in the middle of a forest of huge trees.

Yep, that's my instinct - sow just before going away.

Gorgeous.  I hoe, but in a very targetted fashion and only weeds I recognise.

Composted horse manure....

Tomato Question

Posted: 14/05/2016 at 10:13

I'm in mid (ish) Norfolk and my tomatoes are in a little wood and perspex greenhouse against the east facing house wall.  I wouldn't put them outside yet, but they're doing fine where they are.  

They'll be planted out with no real protection at all when we get back from holiday towards the middle of June.
