Plants are so expensive, you can get loads from a packet of seeds, and they don't take that long to flower, next year they will be lovely, do watch for snails though, they will have them overnight.

Yoghurt and soil will not restore them to their original shiney white condition.

Another tip,   dont manure the ground for your carrots, they will be distorted and forked and hairy, but make sure the ground is well dug and soft so the roots can push down into soft ground,

You can never have too many greenhouses, i am with greenhouses as some women are with shoes! Its so rewarding when you prick out then pot up and finally plant out, be very careful of slugs though, that is very disheartening.

You're doing well Mike, wait till you come to prick them all out, I have pricked out 420 today.  Thats only the tip of the iceberg.

I sowed my rocket seeds last autumn and overwintered in cold frame, they are short stocky plants because i picked the middles out, perhaps you didnt?

Seems they are just a plant for mums and grans then!.  Mine are in a pot and are up only about one inch. Maybe when I am older?

Tomato Plant indoors

You dont feed them until they have made a first lot of flowers, then Tomorite or similar.  If you feed it before it flowers it will say 'no need to flower, i am doing well on food now'  the idea is to keep it hungry and then it thinks ' better get on and set seeds for future generations before i die' just like any other annual.

What's this plant?

Perhaps someone can put this up as a link, please.

Sounds like it could be japanese knotweed.
