Yeah they're on my list David, it's a frilly one I have bursting forth at the mo.
Grow tubes, seed compost, cold frame also on the list, any other 'must haves' for autumn?

*whispers* they were cheap eBay jobbers not the good stuff anyway so I composted em! Maybe I'll have a good sp crop randomly thruout the garden when I use the compost next year!

Hehe, thanks for translating OL, I thought my news was interesting anyway! David before you hibernate could you advise a shopping list so I can be ready for the off come autumn? Thank you. Enjoy the footy. Ooh and can seeds be used after they've been thru the wash and tumble drier in your jacket pocket? :/

Evidently I'm about a month behind some, but I HAVE A FLOWER!!!! *does little celebration wiggle* Lots of lessons learned from my spring-sown trial ahead of my autumn-sown wedding crop for next year but I'm really pleased with myself. Thanks all, but esp David for advice- am standing by for autumn instructions!

I've planted 3 per cane too but not all germinated. Think I've only got 2 or 3 canes with 3 plants. Nipped the tips a week or so ago so I'm just waiting for them to set off at a rate of knots. Are my plants safe from slugs now? Thanks.

Ps delay in response as I was back-scrolling to find your advice on pinching out (p24 if anyone else thinking 'is it time yet') before I asked!

Please don't be famous before the wedding- I haven't budgeted for sp advice!

Whoop I have seedlings- roughly a 50% germination rate at the moment, with one variety noticeably fewer. Slug traps deployed and support strings in place.
