Thanks DPack.

I'll stick it on the knotweed and let you know how I get on.

Thanks for that DPack, I never knew. Next year I'll do a bit more research before I buy a seedling compost. First year I've ever bought one and what a disappointment.

Thanks guys

Apparently on just the other side of that fence there is Japanese knotweed. It was reported to the council 2 years ago and they haven't done anything about it yet.

i suspected the medium when westland got a mention and seeing the snap it does seem the most probable cause.

Are Westlands not very good for compost then?

Thank you Shan and DPack.

Thank you for the offer Shan. We were at Wyvale garden centre yesterday and they are selling tomatoes off. 6 for £1

I'll try again next year.

This is how things are looking down at the allotment at the moment.

Here you go Shan, this is how things are looking. A tomato and a pepper plant.

I'll get one sorted for you Shan. I think the compost was Westlands or something like that. I check on that also and get back to you.

I started them off in a heated propagater and then they were in the shed in the prop but with the heat off and whilst we've had the warm weather on a sheltered but sunny wall up against the shed.

I can't think that in my 48 years of living up north that I have ever seen any mistletoe growing on a tree.

Maybe I'm going to make my millions in a few years.

Thanks Nick I will do.

I'll keep on top of it Shan. I'm guessing it's not going to jump from one branch to another?
