I'm pretty certain that it will have been in the compost, or somehow it blew, drifted or was carried to your seed tray!

Yes, absolutely fine to plant them in the borders - I usually let them dry off in the mini greenhouse and plant them in the garden in the autumn.

Buy the way, fruit growers, don't forget to make some Raspberry Vodka this summer - virtually medicinal when drizzled over ice cream

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.

 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 .

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.
