Hello Anne, it sounds like Peltigera aka Dog Lichen. On my phone so can't post a link but if you google you'll find out all about it. The RHS website has good info.
Hope that helps

Good afternoon folks . More wood shavings purchased, plus large lidded plastic box for keeping them in along with some Chew Tubes not to mention egg trays from the farm shop. I can't put a link on cos I'm posting from my phone, but Google Adobe Gerbilarium and you'll see where nieces gerbils live

I'm also a bit concerned at the possibility of over watering ...

Here in Norfolk I don't put them out until the beginning of June, after hardening off.

I'm going to sow mine within the next few days - probably in root trainers if I can find where I put them last year - if not they'll go in small pots - then they'll go in the little greenhouse.

Good morning all   G'day Pat   That looks like rain on it's way right enough.


Beautiful blue skies and bright sunshine here

The plans for today are somewhat hazy but are likely to include food shopping at the farm shop (plus 'borrowing' an egg tray for gerbil playground), a trip to The Range to buy a big plastic box for keeping gerbil accoutrements in, sweeping up around the gerbil abode, peeling a carrot for gerbils and watching gerbils.  Yes, gerbils are taking over our lives

Talkback: Time-saving tips for growing tomatoes

Thank you Natalie - it's interesting that you too have had poor germination with these. GE sent me a second pack of seeds and the germination with the second ones, in exactly the same conditions in a heated windowsill propagator, is markedly improved.
More seeds would be welcome, although I will probably grow them next year ad I have already bought and sown more seeds to replace the first failed batch of Supersweet.

Can you identify these plants?

Rhus typhina for me. I can see fuzz on the stems.
