Parsley seeds edible??

Unless they are sold for culinary use you cannot be sure they haven't had a seed dressing, which may be poisonous.

If they were specifically labelled for culinary use you are safe.

Over cut hedges

Posted: 31/05/2017 at 00:49

If you want to radically prune a bush, you are best to cut it almost to the ground.  As you have done it tufts will grow from the cut ends.  And very ugly it will look.

It will recover but please think twice and then again before you mutilate any more mature shrubs!

Tomatoes do not need light to ripen.  But they do need functioning leaves to make growth, etc.

How long until I can harvest my first courgette?

Guernsey Donkey; if all the male flowers are removed there won't be any courgettes.  The female flowers have to be fertilized or the female fruit will just rot and drop off before they are big enough to eat.

Could be the roots were congested and can't take advantage of the water you give them.  Did you soak the plant well before you planted it?

Earwigs are not too great a problem.  Catch them in flowerpots stuffed with straw inverted on sticks among the dahlias.
