Were they 'hardened off' during that lovely warm week we had - and then the overall temperatures dropped the following week, especially overnight?

So although they'd been outside they'd not really adjusted to the lower temperatures

Even if you cover them now they'll have been set back.  You might just as well sow some fresh ones - they'll catch up

Don't worry, we've all done it

I'd like to see a lot more of independent specialist nurseries/growers and the plants they grow and develop.

......  Can you enlarge it now Dove?

Thanks Bob, but no - it stays the same - I find that happens with some pictures - sometimes it happens with pictures I've already clicked on and enlarged an hour or so previously   Most odd.

Well, I was half right  

The pic doesn't enlarge when I click on it

I can't enlarge it, but I can see two plants there. 

To the left there's something that looks a bit like a trailing pelargonium (but I may well be wrong as I can't see it clearly).

Peeking out from beneath it to the right is something that looks like a Sambuccus (elder tree).

Hi Alexsia

It doesn't sound odd at all - I know exactly what you mean -  when you say you have a small back garden, what size roughly is it, what sort of soil do you have and which way does it face - how much sun/shade do you have, and is the soil moist most of the time or does it dry out?

Hi Natalie

Can you show us some photos?  To upload photos you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post.

Panda It's going at the far end of the garden, between the compost heaps and the trellis fence - I think

Wonky that looks fantastic!  Brilliant!!! And where did that comfy seat come from? 

You will still need to do slug/snail patrols inside the greenhouse and maybe even put some of the organic pellets down - they're no respecters of greenhouses either
