If they are growing in border soil has anything else been grown in that soil in the past?-cucumbers especially do not like it too wet and suffer from neck rot where the stem meets the soil

How tall are the plants, how long have they been in, and perhaps you could post a photo?

Watered regularly and yellow leaves might be case of over-watering -how often are you watering?-are they in pots, ground, growbags?,-inside or out?

Don't throw salt on the garden-you can use salt on a slug but it is not a pleasant sight!!

Wildlife friendly pellets are available now on Amazon-just checked- if you don't like the chemical ones

Have been watching wet tv pictures and there is still no change forecast-but when will a months rain in 24 hours change to 3 months rain in 24 hours or whatever -you can't have the same event twice in less than a month or use that as a measurement-so what is a month's rain if it happens twice in less than a month?-am I making sense here?

Have you packed your wellies and a shovel?

This is his year -it is written in the stars.

There is a new fad in town-celebs are now tweeting pics of themselves laying on beaches-I could do that- it is the new navel gazing

i agree with you lucky.................. On dr's orders i have to use sun lotion factor 50 on the back of my hands and forearms. Why can't some companies make a sun lotion that has insect repellant in it. Like tea tree oil. or sommat similar.

They do already-Boots sell one under the soltan range

Yes-that is right-you can harvest the charlottes about now-just take what you need on a daily basis by having a rummage in the bags rather than tipping it all out and then having to store them.
