mine wasn't on a roll just a sheet. But still good stuff. I hope I can keep it to next season but maybe that's the super scrimper wishful thinker in me!

What happens when you leave your boyfriend unattended!!

We are on a hill and catch the wind quite a lot. My worry is that it will be rather exposed if I just do mounds or raised beds. So I'm almost certain in my head that I need a fixed design, get the structure in and then plant around to soften. Then veg. But I think with cost it won't be ready for this season. Maybe for the winter veg.

I haven't quite Sussex how to make the most if my veg and flower bed in the winter period. It's that bleak time that worries me the most with putting beds in the front.

Don't get me wrong I'm not hung up totally on neatness and looks but with the beds being at the front they will be surveyed by all! The neighbours down the lane knew I had new flower beds at the front before I even cut the first sod, if you know what I mean.

Will do. Just didn't know if cutting off flowering stems would damage the flower! Call me addicted but I have just been in the shed with a torch sowing 20 gazania, 18 sweet pea and 2 primula vialii roots that I got reduced from homebase!

My flowers were just one spike of bluey purple, not really interesting. The leaves are much more beautiful!

I think I may cop out and do some sowing in the kitchen. The other half has nipped to the pub to see the villagers (its like the WI I'm telling you!!!) so while he is away I will try and get the seeds in without spreading compost and vermiculite all over!!! Then straight into the conservatory to propogate.

Mum told me tonight to use vermiculite to cover seed and this should stop any rotting off issues! Only problem I'd its seems blooming expensive from homebase!!
