insect problem

Ants don't eat plants they might be in the pot but don't do that sort of damage. There most be some critter lurking somewhere that is eating them.

Can you you move the remains  to a different part of the GH staging and see if it continues.

My courgettes are in a cold GH and will be ready to go out in about 2 weeks. 

Multi purpose vs seed compost for veg seeds

Posted: 09/05/2015 at 16:20

I usually sow in sieved MPC, this year I bought a bag of Bowers seed compost, it was without lumps but very gritty. The seedlings seemed to have the compost stuck to the initial leaves and struggled to open, I had to have tweezers on some of them.

I'm back to MPC next year.

Penny I thought that was the height they eventually grew to. Mine are about 3" tall and in a cold GH. I know you don't have a GH so maybe stake them so when you put them outside it might stop them blowing over. I haven't grown them before so don't know if you should pinch them out, and by so doing reduce them..hope someone can help you.

Well said Fidget!

Years ago on a bus a man I knew to be local sat at the side of me and it was obvious he was rubbing his leg against mine, not the movement of the bus. I stood up and shouted stop touching me! Everyone looked at him and he went downstairs and got off at the next stop and for years the slime ball would cross the road rather than face me in the street.

Big hugs Flumpy.

I've now forgotten what I was going to post.
