I have to say, that not being very techie minded, that the format seems better than on Thursday. The  type  has changed and I've installed an ad blocker which gets rid of the really annoying B&Q shed.

This is the best forum, and many members actually meet up for garden visits and plant swaps.

My worry is that rather than go to another forum, people will just drift off into doing other things.

Provado ultimate bug killer. It is systemic and lasts for six weeks. I give them all a dose now, and then leave them so the effect has worn off by the time they flower, and pollinators are not affected.

Hi, Ryan

Violas are pretty hardy.They can become leggy. if you give them a trim back and a bit of  a feed, they will start flowering again. leggy non flowered shoots can be used as cuttings.

Thunder , Lightning and  torrential rain now. I've still got to water the sweet peas in.

Even the ducks have gone for shelter under the pergola.

That's planting sweet peas, not plating. We need the edit button back.

Mine just came with some damp newspaper.

While I was plating sweet peas, I tipped them out of the roottrainers and found a vine weevil grub.  Considering they were on a shelf in the greenhouse, I wasn't expecting that.

A tasty morsel for the robin though.
