I will try Christine, havent left too many this year as I grew a lot last year, didnt think I would need many.. I will put your name down. I am sure, with  Runnybeak we can get enough.

Jimmy....the seed heads will go brown and the seeds inside rattle, dont pick off the plant till then.

There's a lesson to be learnt...always have your phone with you, if you have one that is!!

could have been Acer, check on the net, they are usually good on google images,

Do you have pheasants in the gardens. Looks a bit like that, you will know by the smell if it's a meat eater!

Maybe they didn't build up enough root system, you grew them in little seed pots, runners have long roots best grown in root trainers or if you don't want to go to any expense you can use toilet roll tubes or deep polystyrene cups. One in each.

They need to be about twelve inches tall before you harden them off over two weeks, even then it may be cold at nights. They need to be watered when they first go in the ground.

Did you dig a trench and fill it with compost, veg peelings, grass etc.

Lavender cuttings, I can't do those either, but I have a complete packet of seeds germinated. Don't beat yourself up over failures, we all had them when we were learning. You will find the best way to do things.

Can you tell us what they are Gran, some plugs are small but they can be brought on with TLC  I have never found the company to be a problem, they answer your emails if you are nice and polite to them... I have started my email with....I have used your company for many years but..... They have always been good to me.

My daughter bought those Cat Shoo plants, made no difference at all. I dont have neighbours so no other cats, but mine is kept of with bits of chicken wire/mesh placed in the gaps, once the plants have grown he doesnt bother.

I havent yet found a plant he doesnt like.

Strange isnt it Lizzy, fascinating!

No Sanjy, no propagator or dark, as you say, loads of them, maybe some sowed them a bit too early, I sowed at the end of March, or maybe just into April,
