Think that is what has happened with mine, lack of sunshine to the top.

 Growing against a fence and gets lots of sun.

Hi Caral bet you are

Peas, in my opinion it sounds very drastic for slugs / snail, or even birds, to scoff them all overnight. Never had them but could it be rabbits or mice?  I don't know but I'm sure someone will have an idea. You might just have greedy crawlers.

Your carrots does sound like root fly, I think maybe the damage is now done  How about sowing some more in a different place and putting some fleece over them and pegging it down, it's not too late to sow them. I grow only a few and in tubs as flies only reach up at certain height.

Clari this house isn't finished and we've been here 14 yrs

Bamboo

Totally agree with Blairs.

I have bamboo in my garden and it hasn't been a problem to me or neighbours and they've been planted nearly nine years.

Maybe just reduce them a bit in height as a jesture regarding light, and remove leaves so that you can see the colour of the stems.

Inherited a garden but have no idea what to do??

Hi Ruth welcome.

When we moved here the house had been empty for nearly two years and like yours the previous owner had been a keen gardener. So many lovely plants appeared during the first 12 months, many got transplanted and some given away. I'm glad we waited to see what appeared. We also had to move some for building work but having the time to prepare an area for them they survived.

As Dove says it would be good if we could have a look at some pictures, so we can best advise about cutting them back if needed.   

I wish you happy days in your new home and garden.

Hi all, I was popping back to say I thought the worst had passed by, but it's at it again.

Just rung Mum to check all's okay and have had 20 mins about how yet again the council haven't emptied her re-cycling bins and the pharmacy are wanting to change the day her prescriptions are delivered to the only morning she goes out. Think I have some phone calls to make this afternoon 

Fidget I hope your cold clears up soon, you need some sun to dry it 

Not much chance of a GH base getting done here for a while.

Thundering now

Clari no bench painting later  Maybe if power goes off here I won't be able to see to do HW.

HELLO FORKERS!

Pdoc, soz I forgot to ask if you were any better

It's come very black here, I've just been neighbour's to close GH and then do ours and move some of my plants to give a bit of protection. Have taken a pic of my fully open delphinium as I imagine it's going to get battered.

Hope all who have to go out or drive in it stay safe.
