Hi swed boy, I have been out in our flat gardens today and been pottering around, loved it, some plants had died but one of my primroses was in full boom, last year it didnt do very well so I had to move it. Blue bells are very slow but planted some narcissus that are in flower round one of the trees, even saw a robin watching me, a lovely day.

Sorry cler didn't realise you were talking about seed compost, haven't woken up yet........On all my seed pots I always put a fine layer of grit or vermiculite/perlite......I have found by doing that I no longer have probs with moldy looking stuff and all my seeds and little plants are ok.

I am not an expert by any means cler, maybe you could scrape off the top layer of compost and put some fresh down. I used to get that on my house plants but don't anymore. I feed and water them from underneath. Hope this has been some help.

I have alot of geranium cuttings which have been on my window sills all winter and are doing very nicely, is it time to start hardening them off......I haven't got a greenhouse so they would have to go outside. Have just started feeding them.
