Have just read this article, total BS! I watched this programme and Monty what actually said was not "don't plant out yet, he said don't hurry to SOW SEEDS! And he was quite right!

I have a Macbook Pro which I bought about 2 years ago on a local online auction. It only cost about £200 and was like new, the guy that sold it was one of these computer gurus who regularly buys the lastest version. Perhaps if you look on eBay you might find something similar, just make sure you read the positive/negative feedbacks carefully and ask questions before buying.

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?

Will sow runner beans seeds today......raw runner beans picked and eaten as a snack perfect on summers day
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.
