Hi Brumbull, I use these stakes too, but have found that with time the plastic covering peels off and the metal underneath rusts. Has this happened to you?

Have lovely day everypne

Morning everyone

It's raining here too, but a lot warmer, 20°C due on Monday, yooo hooo Seed planting will definitely begin.

Verdun, it's funny you should mention eating raw beans. I used to do that as a kid in NZ too, even now every now and then. Here they say never eat green beans they are poisonous and only 5 can be deadly! Strange that I'm/we're still alive then, isn't it?

Got to go and buy some jiffy thingies today, the type that swell up when watered, have decided to sow my tomatoes in them this year.

Have a great day everyone and get well soon all the ones that are sniffeling!

Theoretically yes, how big are your containers? Salad leaves should be no problem, they will grow in a window box.

We got rid of ours by doing as Sam12 said, spray, spray and spray again, it took almost a year, but it's gone! But you must report it and get your neighbour to cooperate.

Agree with nutcutlet, as soon as things warm up a bit lots more fresh shoots will come up and on mine the new stems are always a silvery colour.

Had a look too, Dave, and couldn't find one the same. It looks like it might be a pretty rare one, so if you can get hold of one, grab it!

Ha ha, love this conversation! I had my first and only child when I married him, 42 years later and nothing has changed, in fact it's getting worse!

Tweezers for me too, tried Veet a couple of times, but it seemed to work like fertilizer, things grew twice as fast.

Have fun girls, and never mind the guys, they can have their turn later!
