Hi I know it's not GW truly, but where do I get a list of the gardens Monty visited in the French series. We have watched it several times and our French is not that good with names!

It is a hardy plant-does not need to be kept indoors-but outside-what size pot is it in?

My guess it is pot bound and dry-tip it out of the pot -what are the roots like?

Egg idenification

Slug/snail eggs are white and easily distinguishable

I have never seen a worm egg in my life

There are also also capsules that look like eggs and are slow release plant food

Wouldn't worry too much -there are all sorts of things in the soil-goodies and baddies-don't get hung up about this it is nature-if they are not in your soil they are in your neighbours-how are you going to stop that?

Planting out

Off you list -only erysimum is completely hardy

Keep the rest with some protection-greenhouse or cold frame if you have one.
