When should I sow stock seeds in a greenhouse? I've been told that they should be sow now, is that right?

I've got a new greenhouse, so all geraniums are cut back and potted together in a tesco basket (handy items these) I've also dug up my dahlias and am storing them in a tesco basket too.

just a suggestion.

Go to your local vet / doctor, hopefully you have a good relationship. Ask for a syringe and a needle. if you get one your in business. fill syringe with roundup inject the little dears and watch it die.

Not an orthodox method but worth a try?? it gets you past the waxy leaves. time consuming yes. Will it work? It should do.

Please be very careful with the needle.

There are gardening alternatives to the needle bus as the stem is not over thick?

I know they are out there, but I'm blowed if I can find any. 

Can anyone help? About 5 years ago I purchased some bird friendly slug pelletts. They weren't great but they did work with regular dosing. The best thing was they don't hurt birds or pets should the slugs /snails are eaten.

ive been to homebase and other stores but have no luck. Any ideas?

Morning all, well another drizzly day here in Kent. We had such a lovely sunny weekend. The up side is Trevs lawn seed is just poking its head through so he's a happy bunny. I'm a little down as I only have one runner plant left, thought I'd left the slugs at the old house. The runner bean is a little special as it is a seed from my dads gardening years ago. When he died 14 years ago we tidied his garden up and set the veg to flowers for my mum. My sister kept a pod and has each year grown the beans for dad. She only kept a single pod which had 4 seeds, only 3 germinated. I planted them out as they were going strong, the dogs snapped one off so I had 2 left. Yesterday the darn slugs / snails ate another. Fingers crossed for the last one. If it pulls through I'm going to save 2 pods.

Does anyone know how to name the type. He used to grow Red Rum.
