Watering can that won't drown seedlings and plants

you need a rose on the end of the can (term for a sprinkler) and one if possible that is sort of up side  down as this gives a gentle spray of water instead of a harsh splosh.

you could try garlic as a plant ( take a clove and stick in ground where needed) or if bigger plants a garlic spray (put clove in  a pint of boiling water and let cool then put in spray bottle and stand for a day,it gets stronger  all the time and re-fill with water cold.)or you could put grit or gravel round them make an evening search for pests and despose how you like,if you have hens they like slugs.

I planted some bulbs I bought cheap in the sale recently and guess what they are growing. Am I going to daffs in summer?

what's wrong with my peas?

what did you start them off in? maybe the soil you put them was or is too rich hence the odd growth ,they need good soil but only need feeding when in flower.
