Will They Survive?

Posted: 13/03/2015 at 20:38

Should they be romping away at this time of the year?  I am sure once they have settled they will shoot out and be fine.

Take a photo in a months time and send it to Parkers in an email, they will always act, I have been buying their bargains for 4 years now, never let down.

About one inch from the bottom leaves Gemma, then the same each time you pot on until they are ready to go out on in big pots, they make roots all the way up the stems making a nice strong plant. Dont be tempted to pot on too quick, only when their roots fill the pot they are already in.

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.

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.
