HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 05/06/2014 at 07:09

I'm getting impatient - my runner beans (sown direct) are taking ages to germinate - there's only one showing so far and that's one of the 'spares' at the end of the row - I know they'll romp away once they get going, but I want to see them now!!! I've checked my notebook and I didn't write the date when I sowed them - think it was around the time Ma got rushed to hospital and we did the Bressingham trip, so not that long ago really ........ must be more patient

Good morning all   no sunshine here   but at least it's dry - so far.

Have to go to GC later - have vouchers to be spent this afternoon only 30% off, so stocking up on compost etc will be done.

Apart from that, h**sew**k and cooking must be done - friend arriving for the weekend tomorrow!!!

If she did it that long ago and your plants are healthy you have no need to be worried.   It hasn't affected your garden.

No idea at all - did you use a torch?

Can carrot flies see in the dark?  Given their diet one would rather suspect that they can 

veg and poisons question??

I don't think you have need to panic - this sounds as if it was a contact weed killer (such as glyphosate) which will only kill the plants it touches and it's plant killing properties are inactivated on contact with the soil.  

If she'd used the type of weed killer which remained active in the soil and which could therefore spread to other plants would also kill the turf she intends to lay.
