Don't give up Paul.  Gardening is always a learning curve.  If your local garden centre has any late varieties get some and try again following the advice given by Dorcas. 

I am trying to grow veg for the first time this year,  at the moment,  everything seems fine,  but if they fail I will try again.  If at first you don't succeed. ......

Hayfever peaking

I find that starting to take the tablets before the hayfever kicks off helps to keep it in check.

Sorry for the delay in replying Nick.  Cuckoo spit isn't as yucky as it sounds.  It is what a certain insect,  (can't remember what one ) covers it's eggs with to protect them.  I just leave it.  Others will probably be along to give you more information.

I sympathise with you Mr Mustard.  I have suffered with hayfever for the last 4 years.  I have Loretadine on prescription.  I have to take it daily,  from the beginning of March until the end of September. 

If you get too bad have a word with your GP.
