A-Z TV gardening

thanks Gardengirl for the link. I was expecting the bbc iplayer to leave the programmes on for 7 days max, as they do with so many other programmes. Pleased to see that it's going to be left on the iplayer for a while.

Not watched this yet, it's on way too early on a Sunday for me. Really odd bit of scheduling I think. Will have a look though

Hi Derek, not really sure what you are asking or wanting?

I look at loads of threads here out of interest and to learn from other people. Many of the threads I read I don't answer simply because I don't know too much about the subject so don't feel I have a lot to add the subject/question being posed. I'm happy to read the answers off others and to learn from them. If I come across a thread that I can help with or have an opinion about then I will answer.

Ok I'm not sure, it's just they were included in a link in on this site about neo-nicotinoids.

Not ever used nemaodes, seems to me they are just like any other pesticides but just used underground. From the little I know they contain neo-nicotinoids, which I don't think are a good thing for the food chain as a whole as too Provado

Seeds are up

Hiya Sam, I've done something similar with the verbena seeds but in a different way if that makes sense. I chilled the seeds in the fridge for 2 weeks, sowed the seeds, lightly covered them in compost so they are in  the dark and they are now on the window sill indoors. Not grown them before so it's very much a case of wait and see, I think they may take a long time to geminate so will keep them for a while.

Bedding plants

I'm one of those of those early sowers but I would have to agree it's probably too early to start bedding plants. It really does depend on where you live and the weather condtions and it is only February so we can all be struck with cold, snow and hard frosts. I wouldn't bother with the cost of heating a greenhouse.

Having said that I've geminated lobelia indoors and are now in the cold frame as an experiment. They were free seeds so nothing lost if they fail
