One of my old plants is being chomped by them. Another favourite is sweet rocket.

I don't know if you seeds are ready Yviestevie,I seem to remember they take ages to brown. I've had really good results at sowing in small cubes and potting up and then out in the garden.

I cut off the flower shoots when they are long and straggley. It will keep producing new growth and more flowers.

Cuttings do root easily, although sometimes it's hard to find a non flowering shoot. One of my favourites, flower all year long and the insects love it

I'm happy with the forum, it's easy to use apart from the quote thing, never have got the hang of it. I like it being free of the other social media sites.

Some threads including the cat ones do get repeated, but it makes for a much more interesting place. I like the idea of the animals section,maybe pets in the garden?

I do like that you can upload pics without having to use an external site and on the whole they all open so you can see the pic in all it's glory. The PM facility is also very good
