Hi Potty its so strange greenhouse sellers don't give sound advise on bases for there customers, iv decided to slab or grit ours and have removable containers for the growing of, makes it easier to change soils and stuff, I wouldn't use grow bags as theirs some better types of bags available now in G/C and on the net not too costly, iv also saved the big builders bags the timber and builders use for bulk delivery, cut them down and put four 12 inch planks in to make them rigid a few holes in the bottom and have instant raised beds, sounds a nice buy you have there Cedar nice one
Goodluck Alan

Now that's really interesting on a serious note do you think one should save the biggest or the sweetest sized pea as the smaller ones are nearly always sweete,
maybe zomer44 might give me some guidance, we had lots of mice so dipping in Paraffin seemed to work that's what most granddads used to do i remember,right cheers all Alan

Hi all again ,right i read on one question that Zoomer44 talking about where everyone got their seeds said she does her own ,now does this mean that we can save some of the best peas we grow to use the next year, i did this with 3 red spuds i bought for jacket but forgot they were there ,they were really big croppers and tasted great ,now i know you cant do this normally and was only a one off, but iv had some fantastic peas this year and wondered if i can save some each year as i grow LOTS we love em, can i Yae or Nae just stopped raining and its looking good Be lucky Alan
