Panda & Snoodle - Perhaps we could extend the East Ruston Day Out into a Long Day Out cum mini pub visit? 

I shall have to look at diary and pick a date for the ERDO or it'll mess up this Barnsdale thread - but at least it's keeping it bumped up.

Put wrong fertiliser on my lawn, now patchy urgent advise required!!!

It should be fine 

Seed compost will be very low in fertiliser content.

They look lovely Dove.  I'm not sure if mine are the same one, no perfume?

None to speak of - but we've got some others that will be out later that have an incredible perfume!

Hi James

Yes, it's fine to eat - it might affect storage qualities so make use of it early 

We've got a bit of rust on ours too - we'll look out for Early Purple for next time as trials have shown it to have a bit of rust resistence

Leave it to me - I'll explain to them that it's my turn to be in charge of everything!

We could sort out some sort of a meet this summer - even if it's a mini-meet in a pub garden  one warm summer evening ?

I place wire netting over seedbeds until the seedlings are looking robust enough for the neighbour's cats to be uninterested in that spot.

Available from garden centres and online - I've cut a roll into lengths that fit the veg patch and raised beds, but if it's just a small area I just unroll a section and peg it down with pegs made from wire coathangers - it works for us
