I have yellow mildew on the central stems of my small gooseberry bushes (dont know the specific type).  The mould is thickest at the base of the stems.  I was investigating online and the closest I could find was American gooseberry mildew although this seems to be more of a summer-time issue when the bushes have leafed if not fruited.  Any thoughts on diagnosis/treatment.  Many thanks for all the comments.

My pea seedling have got rather large in the greenhouse even though it is not heated. I transplanted 3 outside last weekend and they don't seemed to have suffered so I put a small row out this morning. It was only a half a pint for 20p out of date ones so I ain't losing much if they fail and plenty of time to re-sow if they do. The weather is supposed to be nice and warm for the next few days so fingers crossed.

Has anyone tried these?  A good idea or not?

Well I guess many of us have already invested in buying new seeds, but have you gone for the ones you know best or something different.  I suppose it's a bit like gambling - do you place your money on a plant with reliable past form or do you take a long shot and back one with little form but will outperform the rest of the field according to a tip off.  Bit obscure really, but who's the gambler and who is the one who plays safe on this forum?
