I think I read somewhere that these flatworms carry a caustic "sap".  Anyone know if this is true?

Very informative Mike 

Re magnesium I am a great believer in Epsom salts for all sorts of reasons.  As a routine spay on tomatoes, slightly chlorotic looking plants and as a boost to tired looking Rhodos, Camelias etc.

Hello FORKERS

looking bright and sunny right now.  Feels warm.  

Fasting KEF?  After brekkie I will fast until lunchtime.    As a student I tried to emulate a colleague by fasting one day a week.  I lasted maybe 3 weeks.  It was very difficult. 

Warm week to come I think

Anthony,

Apparently anemone Wild Swan is difficult to grow but not for me.   It is a new form of anemone that flowers early summer......can be late spring....onwards into autumn.  Lovely white flowers with blue backs .......making a very attractive plant.

Alice

Can you use jeyes fluid?  Spray it everywhere.  ....not on plastic though. ,if not hot soapy water will help BJT be as thorough as possible.  It looks a good week to do it too...any plants could go outside. 

Not great aesthetically but grease cards will help control flying pests in GH too
