Hi all,

I have been having trouble with my peas the last 2 couple of years, either they rot in the soil or only a few germinate outside, yet if I sow the same seed in a border in the greenhouse I get very good germination and lots of peas.  The only difference I have done the last 2 years is not scatter lime of the top once covered up. I have scraped away the soil and no peas at all in some cases.

any ideas? I understand the rotting is down to too wet soil. But no peas? could it be mice,birds, squirrels?

Hi All,

Just to day that my husband Paul died in March this year and i know that some of you would have met him when we had the meet ups in Birmingham and though i would let you all know.

It was very sudden and unexpected and were all heartbroken.

I picked the last of my leeks today and when stripping the outer skins noticed red lines running down the length of the stem. I have seen it before but can't find out what it is doing it. Can anyone help or advise me please.

New plotholders have to pay a deposit on our council sites which is returned when they give up the plot if the plot is left in good order. It is currently 25 which does not cover the council's costs by a long way in most cases.

What amount do other sites charge? What might be reasonable - the council is suggesting 150 or even 250. This would affect new plotholders only, so it may be more a question of whether anyone would be put off and there is a small waiting list currently.
