Why are all my plants doing badly?

Posted: 26/02/2016 at 09:58

I agree with above comments- perhaps you should have waited till your beds were ready! it is so frustrating when plants die before you get them in  i have a lot of trouble with seedlings dying off in my greenhouse, especially aubergines, tomatoes and peppers. I cleaned the greenhouse and put a sulphur candle in but still my aubergines started to die off- i rushed them into the kitchen, 1 has died but the others look ok and i moved the tomatoes into the kitchen as well and they are ok. seeds are expensive now, i only got 8 seeds in my tomato packet!
 i read somewhere that sprinkling ground cinnamon round seedlings stops them damping off so i am trying that.

does anyone like Cucamelons? I grew them for the first time this year- grew really well

but they have tough skins and very little taste! very disappointed.

i have used seaweed for several years, never asked permission, never been told i can't take it. I just put it on veg beds quite thickly about now to rot down over winter, i never wash it. better than manure- no weed seeds!

I grew some early lovely dwarf french beans in my polytunnel this year- the slugs and snails had most of my outdoor ones. I also put some late courgettes in and they are doing really well still now.I started the beans and the courgettes off in pots in my greenhouse, the beans in about March and the courgettes not until May, so i had some outdoor ones to start with.
