Gardengirl, I have never grown the grass before, but I think you put them out separately. I must have a read up on them,

Gemma, when you come to pot your tomato seedlings on, will you plant up to their shoulders?

Your foxgloves are gorgeous, just ready to plant out in the Autumn.

Borage from my seeds, leggy, I know but will get repotted up to the shoulders

I have bought Beth Alpha this year £1.49 for 60 seeds and free postage.

When I want to start peppers off, I just buy one I fancy in the supermarket and sow the seeds, they always seem to come true.

Afraid not, they will just love hiding and breeding under that, but you could hide a few slug pellets under it.

I would advise GG to put 2 screws in the fence near to the top of the little greenhouse then string a rope right around the whole thing, weighing down the bottom wont be enough on a windy night, the bottom will stay put and the top sway over.

I havent this year but have done in the past. Best to put in compost in pots and keep in an unheated greenhouse until May, they should show signs of top  growth then.

They get plagued with tiny shiny green leaf beetles, they make the holes. you may see them and kill them, but they dont last long and the new leaves in the Spring will come out ok, if you can put up with it for now. You cant split them. each is one plant, nothing to split. 

Garden pests are a way of life, if you are willing to share with them, they will go away, probably only to be replaced by another pest!!!

Thats gardening for you.  xx
