Thinning seedlings

Bev, neither look like Nigella to me. Agree with FB. Can't tell if they are in a tray or modules, if in modules just leave 2 in each & split when ready to plant out.

Looking better than my Gypso..thingies..

Waste of time & effort ?

Mangetout, grew loads, don't know why only like them in a stir fry. Grew summer broc' once, soaked in salt and when blanching to freeze caterpillers floated to the top. Yuk, yuk. Worst part we'd eaten loads. Now only grow purple sprouting broc' that matures in March, so no crawlies. Better not be any

Archiepem good job done there. Just wondered is it a watering can job or hosepipe? Wanted to check daughter has an outside tap/ water butt.

Bob those damn things usually appear at start of June, but late this year. We have to wipe conservatory window sills outside at least 3 times a day with a very wet sponge, or they leak red all over. Inside it's wet kitchen roll to dab them with, if I catch the odd one heading for my white blinds (gross to say ) it's a wet finger on them and then a hand wash.

Luckily they seem to only be here about a month. Neighbours don't have a problem and we wondered if they arrived in the sand that was part of mix for conservatory brick work. They don't seem to crawl up the wall just appear under the sills and then on PVC, and inside through any means available.

Busy L, I don't know.

I clean glass houses and canes with it, and sometimes drains, but will say it stinks, and I hate the smell.

Like Dove I did get outside, togged up like winter and now also rained off again. Wind has picked up so Sweet peas were getting battered and sprouting broc needed heeling back in. Have picked some mini cumbers and salad stuff. In charge of garden next door for a week, at least no watering needed today.

 Even resorted to putting some washing in and doing HW, on the day of rest   ( gardening not a job )

Think I'll stay off here until later or I'll be banned for hogging it. Plus I don't know any answers to recent questions. But do sooo want a blue Himalayan poppy, if you've not seen the Meconopsis thread do have a look.
