Great.  I've got both some nice pink tones wallflowers and lovely white foxgloves so I'll get cracking this weekend.  Thanks very much.

That's fantastic, thank you.  Are there any that you've found don't work or that very much do?

Can anyone help.  I want to sow some biennials for next year but really don't want to direct sow as I never get good results and don't have any areas of bare soil in the right places.  I really want to sow in trays or modules to nurture and grow on for planting in autumn or next spring, will this work.  Any suggestions/help would be gratefully received.

On the subject of kids gardening, my son who is now 18 was always keen on growing things in the garden when he was little. When he started growing up and other things became more interesting he stopped being interested in the garden, but now we have a house with a large garden and when he's around he shows a keen interest in the garden and what we are growing and harvesting (doesn't doing any digging though!).  So what I'm saying is even if kids 'go off the boil' in the teenage years I think if an interest in the garden and growing is nurtured at a young age it stays with you for the rest of you life, and that can't be a bad thing can it?

Great, thanks for that I will give them a feed today.

Yellowing courgettes

We moved last autumn.  The veg patch was covered with black plastic but on peeling it back we found that the previous owners had had a bonfire on part of the patch.  Anyway dug the lot over at the start of the season and all is well at the moment apart from my courgettes.  I planted four plants, two are fine but two have yellow leaves.  I don't know if it has anything to do with the bonfire (they are planted roughly in that area), or whether they need a good feed.  Any ideas anyone?  What should I feed them with?  They have been in about 3-4 weeks and are growing.  Haven't a clue if anything was grown on the land last year and if so what.
