Yeh, I won a pair of tickets to the harrogate show a few yrs ago. Nothing since.

What is this seedling?

Nor does it look like the seedling of a climber, such as a morning glory in my experience.

The leaf shape leads me too suggest, Sassafras.

I wouldn't worry...mines been the same height for the past 8 years. About a metre tall.

I'd say, try to keep the soil as dry as you can. If you do have to water, use a can as opposed to a hose. These things thrive in moist/damp/wet soil - or try to find some sort of product that tackles these creatures.

Sorry, not much help... I'm I.

I'm inclined to say, although the pic is well blurred - white spring tails, Protaphorura armata. However, there are many kinds, some jump...some don't. They kind of fit the bill with regards to the environment they like - wet/damp soil.

Google on images, see if the close-up matches what you've actually seen yourself. 

I have come across the very tiny small ones in compost before, but never ones this size.

Do they jump? or have legs.

Where are my vegetables?

The only things I plant in situ is carrots, parsnips, onion and garlic. The rest is started off in trays as the success rate is much higher. Then I pot on, and after a few weeks I plant out. 

I too did the same when I was a beginner, quickly changed my method. Still not too late to re-sow into trays.

That new roundup gel

If you're worried about the effects of this product and it's impact on wildlife. Worry more about what happens to the plastic container once you discard it.

This simple plastic container will kill more wildlife, than the gel inside.
