I use the clear plastic packaging that you get with things like cakes; the ones that have a domed top.  They make excellent mini 'greenhouses' for sowing seeds.  Punch a few holes in the bottom if you like drainage and place on another plastic (free) tray that once held meat or other stuff from the supermarket.  Washed of course  These are usually short-term but are free and ok until pricking out time.

can anyone help what is mulch? im very new to all this and mulch comes up alot!! thanks

Hi Kimberbell, Sorry about the delay in replying... Mulch is just a material that you put around the roots of your plants, at least a couple of inches thickness.  It can be anything from bark chippings to compost.  It helps to keep the moisture in the soil, keep the weeds down and can feed the plant when the worms take it down to the roots.  I hope this helps, I'm not an expert.  If this doesn't help, look up mulch on google and you will find lots of info.

Thanks Daniel, I'll have one last shot then give up - after all, the tree is obviously dead - ha!

C:\Users\JenLin\Desktop\Flowers & Seedlings\IMG_1093.JPG is larger than 1024000bytes. Please upload a smaller file

This is what the message says - cheers!  Of course, if I ever get to download it, it is certain to be an anti-climax - ha!

Thank you Daniel and yes I did click the tree and I went into my computer, I selected my picture but the message said it was too large.  I copied and pasted it into a word doc and decreased its size, that didn't work.  I zipped the file to make it smaller but that didn't work either.  They were either too large or not of the right format.  I'm not sure what else I can do with the photo/file?

ps. To the other lady on the forum, just for fun - I am a Jennifer Anne (with an e) too

Hi! Can anyone help to identify this green/yellow dusty mouldy stuff that has attacked my rowan tree?  I think the tree has left this mortal coil but I am curious as to what killed it off I have tried to submit a photo but I can't get it to transfer either by 'paste', orig format or zipped file

Also, my silver birch has died as well but there is no obvious signs of mould or anything else.  Both trees are in my front garden.

Thank you.
