Just to add to above, they cost £17.00 for 66 plants and the free fuchsias and lily bulbs were beautiful.

sorry, edit doesn't workπŸ™„

I think that eBay and Amazon are quite strict with their sellers, so everything should be up to standard as it them that have to give the money back, and without question. 

I haven't bought plugs but I have bought shrubs and they were fantastic, 12 for £20.00, I expected small bare roots, but they were well grown.

i have just had these delivered from J. Parker, large flowering Bacopa, didn't sow seeds this year, forgot, so treated myself. They come in much deeper plug trays than most so I can use those again. Very pleased.

No Geoff, from a packet. They are very slow, I would suggest taking them out of the propagator and give them a bit longer.

I sowed these on the 10th march,  no heat needed, they are quite hardy.

Delphs can be  very erratic, I am still getting some germination on the ones I sowed last year, others in the same pot, pricked out and potted on. Just leave them out in the GH or in a plastic one and let them take their time. I don't ever use a propagator, just sow in a rice/yogurt pot.  

I find, and it may be just me, but aquilegia are not keen on being moved once germinated, try some just sprinkled on the soil where you want them to grow.  They will self seed so must be ok sown straight outside. 

Gardeners World- what's going on ?

As we work in Cornish churchyards for a living, we loved the programme. We spend a lot of time looking for different Lichen when we should be working.πŸ˜€ inspiration. Can't see any point in another weather forecast, we've only just seen one, or even two on the earlier news

tomatoes and courgettes

Mine are potted on, now in 4" pots, I put them outside for an airing yesterday, it was very warm and sunny, but when I brought them in at 5pm some tips of leaves had turned white, that's a sign of cold. 

Thye will be kept indoors until end of April before going into the GH.

Sloping bank ground cover

Can't help but I can vouch for Ajuga making a good ground cover, I am overrun with it, fill the compost bin every year!

I never rush to prick out, get them to a decent size first then each individual one in a tray, sometimes I put them in those 20 to a tray plastic ones, some in meat trays, some in the six packs from GC, whatever I have. so you can see each colour separately.

I like them but maybe a 100' run was OTT. πŸ˜€ they do need the sun all the time and like to be dry, I am not blessed with much sun or dry here πŸ˜€

Pricking out grass (probably silly question)

You do pot them separately, I grow those for around the pond. Plant them out 30cms apart, they spread to make a bushy plant.
