Thank you for your help Edd. 

moss on allotment beds

We have beds absolutely covered in moss in our new allotment. Is it ok just to dig it back in? We also use a rotavator occasionally and i was wondering if it might be the cause of the soil becoming compacted, thereby allowing the moss to grow? The beds are well drained but have not been cultivated for 2 years.

We have them in the greenhouse and in a half barrel outside. Lots of flowers and not much set fruit until we nipped off all the growing shoots and gave them far more water than previously. They did not like the really hot weather , but we are now inundated with tiny melons. Great for slicing in half and putting in Pimms or Gin and tonics, as well as adding to salads .
