Talkback: Monty Don returns to Gardeners' World

You need to post your question on a seperate thread as was indicated in the post above yours-I think you will find that monty will not answer your question on here-and you will need to give more details.

You are doing well-and there are people on here that will talk you through any worries.

Just one word of caution about leaving the door open 24 hours if you are not there to look after things-you don't want a cat or fox in there causing mischief-rig up some sort of barrier -perhaps a piece of wood-I use an old stair gate wedged in.

It is nice when kids do well -gives us parents a warm glow-we must have got something right

The sun and breeze has dried the washing- the forecast for today was more pessimistic

Begonia tubers not growing

They do need warmth and moisture- are they new tubers this year?

The slugs have been at them- and looking at you picture it looks as though it might just be the effect of chilling-have you had cold nights where you are?

Self-seeded tomatoes

I fear they may be lost-you could sow some more but obviously they are going to be late or buy in plants-why not wait for a few days and see if there is any sign of life?

Yes to both questions -you will obviously need a special variety.

I carry matchsticks in my hand luggage specifically for propping open my eyelids

Keeping Chickens

You are going to have to remove the soil occasionally and change it if it is to be a permanent place-in my experience anything put on the ground -straw -whatever gets scratched about.

I have just rigged up a cover to cover the chicken area to keep the wet weather off.
