Thank you for your prompt replies, it seems a terrible waste, but probably safest to pull them up right now so I'm not tempted! Plus I usually supply my lovely neighbours, and I would hate to poison them and myself! Oh well there's always next year!

The tomato plants in my greenhouse were accidentally sprayed with Weedol which I think is a glyphosate based weed killer. I have removed the affected foliage, and there are loads of well developed but as yet unripe tomatoes. Assuming they survive, will they be safe to eat?

My Anemone de Caen have been with me for a few years and always seem to do well. They've been flowering all winter, and are now pretty much flowered out. I want to move them to another part of the garden, and my question is ...when's the best time? Can I do it now or should I leave them until the foliage disappears? I live in South Norfolk.

Hi Mandi, Is it possible that froggy is attracted to your garden by those tasty grasshopper snacks? He may well be eating some of them....if you remove the grasshoppers, might you lose him?

I'm not sure, but I think starlings only visit Portugal in the winter, but there will be other birds that eat them, as will toads, lizards, snakes etc. Here is a link you may find useful   http://www.ehow.com/how_8323344_stop-grasshoppers.html Good Luck

I believe starlings will eat grasshoppers. If you can attract them they might solve your problem.
