Funny thing is... and I watched the video..... The camera tracks the thieves taking away the turf. Since a security CCTV is fixed, that wouldn't have happened.

If the camera operating neighbour was watching them, why didn't he call the police?

Any supermarket will have clear food storage bags which have zip lock tops.

Ordinary carrier bags which are opaque are no good. If you have the cuttings in a 3 inch pot, use a cut down 2l pop bottle as a propagator.

I use a tray with a propagator lid, available from most garden centres.

If you want to lift, then wait until the remaining spike has gone brown.

I have grown the same...Priscilla, £1 for 15 corms from Lidl.

two bags full have given me loads of cut flowers for the house.

At that price, its no hardship to buy a couple of dozen each year. In free draining soil, if they are planted deep, they will survive most winters and rebloom next year.

I grow them in lines in the veg patch, taking the space when the broad beans come out.

What type of cucumbers are you growing.?

Indoor cucumbers are bitter if pollinated. Ridge cucumbers grown outside usually set by insects.

Yes I noticed the lock. I think that's good. I presume only the mods can do it and not the thread starter.
