I agrre with verd, can yoh take a close up of leaf and flower.
I saw a remedy for this on a gardening prog this eeek, Garden Hopping. She said as its stalks are very shiny, weed killer doesnt touch it, but beat it about with a strong stick so that you break the coating on the stems then spray on glysophate. Digging it up doesnt work very well. Every tiny bit of root left in will grow again. I dont have it so cant speak from experience.
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 am on my second attempt at sowing the perenial seeds, no luck with either, when did you all sow your seeds?.
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?
