I sent an email to GW magazine yesterday asking them to do something about this spam. Don't know if it will work, here's hoping!

Hanging baskets in shade

How about hanging fuchsias and or begonias, they both like shade but can put up with a bit of sun in the evenings.

This might give you some ideas:

FG, any suggestions for an adult who throws a hissy fit because his soft boiled eggs weren't cooked properly and, guess what, it was my fault.  Where did I go wrong.

TT, you didn't clip him over the ears soon enough. As for now, tell him to boil his own eggs if he doesn't like it!

This kitchen spam thing is getting ridiculous! These spammers must be sending eachother smoke signals saying "load spam on GW forum"! I have reported about 10 so far this morning, in one message to moderator I have asked whether they can't put in a "kitchen filter".!

agapanthus seedling

I can imagine your initial shock, maggots yuk! I would pot them up in seed compost in 3" pots now, about 1/2" down. Stand the pots in water until compost has soaked it up, you can see when it's enough because the colour of the compost gets darker. Give them plenty of light and don't pot on until roots look out of the bottom of the pot. Agapanthus prefers to be a bit pot bound.

Help, are these plants ok for my small wildlife pond?

I have just bought a water lily for our pond from a water lily specialist. The accompanying instruction say DON'T use water lily compost as it contains turf which will kill the plant. Only use ordinary garden soil! Enjoy your pond, I'm sure it will turn out great!
