Clari -  I presume you only get a tiny amount of compost, but is it better for seed sowing as it will be very fine textured, or would it be too rich for this time of year?

Hi Dan - can't help you re the chilli you've grown, but if you start a new thread with a title like 'where can I get specialist chilli seeds' it will have more chance of getting some replies from those who do  know. 

Those look more like the ones you can roast whole or stuff with something don't they?

Morning  - not much that's good about it unfortunately. Very wild and wet...and I have to go back to work as well  

Chicky - are you sore after all that cycling? 

Enjoy your lunch Dove 

Will have a quick look round here now before I go. Hope everyone has a good day whatever they do.

Bumping this up for you Charles in case someone can help you. 

If you have a pic that will help ID the problem, if any. 

What to prune now and when? Please read my message :) Thank you

Paul -  I think the magazine does  a pruning item at various times but not 100% sure. If you use the search  facility at the top of the page and type in something like 'shrubs to prune in autumn' that might point you in the  right direction.  Alternatively, if you know what shrubs are in the garden, you could list them here and you'll get help and advice from forum members
