    I lost quite a lot last year too. They went a sort of albino colour when only a few inches tall ... and then died. I have no idea why, the seed was a year or two old, but I wouldn't expect that to be a problem ... I've bought 250 seeds this year to make sure I have enough plants!

    Blimey Kristen, that doesn't sound like any pest, virus, fungus or bacteria. Which makes me think of herbicide contamination of your compost.

    Couldn't resist the nursery today. Got Kelsae onions,Golden shrimp beans ( to go with my red mullet beans),Crosbys Egyptian Beetroot, Scorzonera Duplex & Elefant Leeks. The last one was cheap as they'd spelled it wrong.

    I don't know what it was Ziggy. Half of them were fine - same compost, same everything really as far as I know.
