GW Subscription Issues

Posted: Yesterday at 11:14

Yes mine used to arrive between the 20th-22nd of each month.

I was going to say I was expecting mine to arrive today due to the Bank Hol but the Postie has just walked straight past my house, I'm sure I saw a magazine that looked like it in his hands so I wonder if there is another subscriber down my road ... or I've just been mistaken lol
I do hope I don't spot the new issue when I'm at work later, I'l be very upset lol
Fingers crossed for tomorrow

Thanks for the response Daniel.

I sowed these last year from a packet of Foxglove 'Alba' seeds, however as you can see they look like something else ...

Any help is most welcome.


Anyone know the name of this succulent?

As for greenfly you can just squish them with your fingers or use a soap & water solution

I wouldn't put them out just yet. Start hardening them off by putting them outside during the day then back under cover at night for a week. If you really are desperate for space you could put them in a sheltered area of the garden and fleece if a frost is forecast. It's always a good idea to harden them off first so they can adjust to the change in temperatures.

I don't like to put mine out or my bedding plants out until the first week of June which by then, fingers crossed, there shouldn't be a risk of frost but it's always good to keep an eye on the forecast.

I definitely get a few look at the GC, specially when I'm loading up on compost.
