Carrot Problem

They'll still be fine to eat. I had some that looked like that in a large bed last year, I left them in and pulled them up as and when I wanted. Some stayed in the ground right up until spring (survived the snow too), when I wanted to plant the bed up with flowers.

I must say from the opening post I had very little hope for this thread, now it's one of my favourites.

What's the best type of waxy potato?

I turn it over when all the silly screaming stuff starts.

Seeds are currently 50p a pack at my local Wyvale Garden Centre. I stocked up on broad beans, peas and some lettuce which is supposed to be good over winter.

It's rainy here and I have a headache.

Veronica you can use ripped up old newspaper stuffed in to a spare upturned pot, put it out at night and move the contents in the morning. Earwigs eat other pests in the garden so whilst they are annoying in terms of growing Dahlias they are useful elsewhere.

A tip on GW last friday night was that buds that appear pointed have already flowered whilst buds that are round are new flowers coming. If you deadhead (by removing the flower stems and spent buds) you might still get some flowers this year.

Sorry to hear that Dove, hope they didn't eat too much. If it's one thing I can't deal with it's caterpillars, I'm fine with slugs and snails, but caterpillars just creep me out too much. I let the OH know that dealing with them was one garden job I was not going to do.

It seems you can grow them here providing you give them the right conditions (and I assume live in the south).
