Thanks Edd

I will get my glasses and get back to you

My question was related to all things that "fly " such as beetles and bugs and crickets and such like

It was a bit tongue in cheek............

Welshonion............its only for my personal knowledge

I have had my allotment for just over 3 years know and I am interested in increasing my knowledge mainly because people have started turning to me for advice...scary

We get a new couple every month starting a plot and I like to be as helpful as possible

No you are correct in the scheme of things it does not matter and thank you for your help

Im sure this question has been asked before

I have a conservatory onto the garden and I grow seeds

I have several small black flies that spread all over the house 

? Any ideas

? Also why do we only call one thing that flies "A Fly"

Broad beans - should they look like this?

Mine grew up for 5 inches and then turned down and now grown up again

I sowed mine in small pots and then planted out

They have flowers on the stems so it should be OK for beans

Does anyone know the answer please

? Should the new growth only appear from the centre of the slips on the ridge OR can they appear any where along the roots
