    There's no photo. It might be too big - try reducing the size. Around 1MB is ideal.
    However, if you have another thread, it's better to add them there.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • thank you I’ll try that

    I'm assuming that you watered them when they were pricked out Watchbury, the only thing that I can think of is a blast of cold air or being in a draught.

    I'd know the 'swim' of a narrowboat anywhere.... lived on one for 5 years. It's not the best environment for light, and @Uff could be right, it's drafty (sorry for the pun). Many boaters grow the most beautiful flowers on their roofs, one of those small travel boxes on your roof with a glass or polythene cover should be better. 

    Boater are basically so practical, so it'll be interesting to see what you come up with. Please share  :)

    We bought some of that compost and I'm not using it for anything but mature plant top ups. If yours is the same as we had its horrible stuff, all fibre and no substance. I'm mixing it with some proper soil to give it some structure and leaving the unopened bags more time to decompose a little. 
  • They were on my windowsill with no fraught and yes watered in .  All dead now. Speaking to Which and Homebase after holiday
