My OH says that the NHS has had it!

He reckons it should be privatized, not being politically minded so I don't know, but I do know that I had to ask for help two and a half weeks ago, they still haven't put a care package, as they call it, in place.

Thank goodness for the Hospice crisis team, they have come in to help for 5 days, but cannot do it any more as I am really only entitled to 72 hours.

Never had white fly in there, do get a few green fly, but being vigilant, I squash them as soon as I see them.

Will They Survive?

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.
