Just make sure it's well tied down especially when it's open or you may find it 'repositions' itself along with all your plants.

It's common this year due to the dry weather, cut off any flowers that appear and keep the plant well watered, it will be fine.

Leadfarmer, what gorgeous labs, hope they find a great home together.

Barefoot, I hope Buster is on the mend he's a cracking looking dog.

GWRS, sounds like mice may well have been the culprits. Many moons ago, when I as a lad, I helped my Dad on his plot and he also sowed direct in the ground in. November, always seemed to have a good crop and little blackfly trouble.

Janet, good idea,I can't see why you couldn't try them in the GH and treat them similar to sweet peas. I think I'll try it myself and see how they compare with direct sown.

Gardengirl, fingers crossed you're on the mend soon.

Thanks Logan, lots of people comment that she seems to be smiling all the time. She had no problems running on the pebbles, normally we go to sandy beaches but they're all shut to dogs now, so as we were dropping off youngest at Uni we stopped at Whitstable for a stroll.

How is your recuperating coming along?

I keep meaning to try sowing in the autumn and then it turns too wet to get on the plot. Think I will try using one of the raised beds this autumn, that way they might be early enough to beat the heavy infestation. Hope you're over the ' lurgy' Gardengirl?
