I am with you Yviesstevie, don't miss the job, love the time I have now, but I do miss the money, and the company. Its amazing how quickly my friends forgot me.
Sieving all the soil on an allotment, to a depth of say 1 foot, would be a massive job, I wouldn't do it, but I am very lazy!
As Buddyboy says it is probably normal, but also are you feeding it, is the pot now too small, and, does the compost need replacing?
I would wait until next Spring when they will put on rapid growth.
I would, in fact I feed all year, although there is a view which says not to feed during summer.
There is also more pleasure being able to watch the birds all year on the feeders.
Agree they are harmless, probably fit somewhere useful in the food chain, which we will only discover when we wipe them all out.
Yes, Yes, Yes [said in a breathless When Harry met Sally way] 4 - 0, what a game.
I would leave them until next Spring when they should be big strong plants. It can be very tempting to pant out very small plugs, but you will lose many by doing this.
Agree with Berghill, if that tall probably a Helianthus.
In my garden they only seem to do well in beds that are fairly moist They seem to sulk in dry areas. Mine cope well with a little shade.
