We have a wood pecker that comes down to next door's peanut holder! Between him and the squirrel the small birds dont stand a chance....luckily they can come in to our garden to eat

Thank you Daintiness, I looked it up and yes you're right .......but no such thing as a weed, only a plant in the wrong place     It's very pretty.

It's definately not Himalayan balsam, the flowers are completely different, it's much shorter and leaves smaller

Does anyone know what this plant is please?

Sorry about the fuzzy pic! The plant appeared a few weeks back in a wooden plant holder that had fuschias in. Its about 14" tall, long, thin leaves and pretty, unusual, pale pink flowers.

Strangely, I was looking at Dobies today and wondering whether they would be ok.

I know in the past I have bought seeds and the germination hasn't been reliable, but I cannot for the life of me remember the company names (note to oneself to keep a diary!) I have had good results from T & M, that one I remembered!

Which seed companies do forum users buy from? Does it make a difference?

Deep seeds trays

Posted: 22/09/2012 at 14:09

I watched an episode of Gardener's World the other night (recorded so not sure when it was on) and Monty was transplanting some seeds (maybe cabbages?) into another seed tray, but this one was deeper than I have ever seen anywhere. Any ideas where one could purchase these please? I would say they were about 3"-5" deep, but length and depth of normal ones.
