Strange substance growing on broad bean and pea seeds

Its because the skin isn't needed anymore! Why did you feel the need to pull it out?. 

Peas in the Gutter

I cant see the point either, you have to have them so far apart anyway, you might as well group separate pots together.  I grow them in 5" deep paper pots, you can then put the whole lot in the ground with no root disturbance at all.

Can anyone identify this shrub/plant thankyou :)

I agree with Verdun, don't you have to burn them off ?

Its cheaper if you just by it be name instead of 'brand' name., such as Roundup, like anything, you pay for the name.

No, you start them off in little pots, you can put the pots outside through the summer, but I always bring mine in for protection over winter.  They are not very hardy when they are young plants, the following year, once planted out, just cover with a mulch or any old compost you may have salvaged through the year.

Perfect time to sow, they will make good plants over the summer and winter then plant out next spring for a lovely show. You do have to protect them from slugs though. If you want something that will flower this year, try the dwarf pixie lupins, they flower this year.

Curling leaves on Fuchsia

If you want too, you could cut all that damaged growth off, the fuchsia will make lots more strong growth this year.

If you cut it back that much it will never ever recover, you can lower it but not cut the width.

If you plant in front of it to hide the bareness, the plants may be starved of water and light.
