On the" what to do now" it suggests you cut willow right back

Growing Sweet Peas

The sweet peas i sowed, then were eaten down to stumps, i brought in and within 2 weeks had sprouted again to about 2 inches tall with  afew pairs of leaves, so ive put them back in the green house. will keep an eye on them so they dont get eaten

my first year too

planted 8 cloves outside and 2 on a window sill as an experiment planted middle of october.

the 2 on sill have massive shoots. the rest in the veg patch all have little shoots. i've put cloches over them (plastic squash bottles cut in half) to keep snow off, they have disappered in the snow completely covers them.

I have more cloves so i'm going to start them all off inside, i might leave them outide for a bit to get cold then

Growing Sweet Peas

After 2 weeks away came back to find only 2 shoots remaining - the rest had been eaten.

So (sorry David K) but i've brought them inside and they are all trying to grow again!, keeping them safe on the sill now.

although last spring i kept my sunflowers indoors to protect from slugs and when they were a foot high, i put them next to the patio door for light and the dog ate them!
