Hello John Harding,

Plants still doing well thanks to your advice. We did lose the sickly ones, they were obviously beyond saving but the others are growing stronger by the day.

Hello John,

Hubby rushed out and bought the Epaon Salts and to his amazement they seem to be doing the trick. We still have a few sickly plants but won't give up on them. The rest are looking much healthier. Thank you very much for your help and i will give you a progress report in a week or so. V

Excuse my ignorance but what would be the point of "hardening off" in a cold-frame if it is the same as a greenhouse? Would you have it in a shadier part of the garden?

Just a thought, isn't a cold frame the same as a greenhouse?

Thank you marshmello and Garden Maniac, I will persevere with them. I can quite see the point about jumping into the North Sea. Noted for next time. Welshunion, what is a cutworm? Sounds gruesome.

Hello,

We planred our cabbage and cauliflower seedlings into our allotment straight from the greenhouse. They have turned a strange shade of pink and are looking lifeless whereas they were very vealthy until then. What have we done wrong?
