I may have but I am also working on my wife to let me get a lean to green house for the top of the garden that has a unused carport with no roof just a back gate.i can get one from amazon for under £100.00 I think that would be the best idea as I have lost a lot of young plants in the winter. what do you think bekkie

Hi all. just thought I would share.

I took the offer from T&M for free plants well paid for them and in three weeks they turned up at my home opened the large open sided envelope to find my plants inside and to my surprise the plants were nice and dark green and very healthy. very very small but really good roots on all the plants. I took some pic for you to see.
