Have never tried their compost. A local farmer warned me against their meat; it is very easy to label something as British, when it may not actually have been reared here.

Andrew, I can't see where you are located; if you are not in the far North or in a flooded area, I would plant them outside, or hedge your bets and plant some in large cheap plastic pots. Your local garden centre may have some 2nd hand that you could use.

Bought some seeds at Lidl today; cheapest packet was 29p I think; brill

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

Misselong, I always assume that the last frost could be as late as May18th. Having said that I always put my Pelagoniums from last year outside at the beginning of April (after hardening them off for about 5 minutes) as by that time I think of them adult enough to look after themselves. Besides I need the room in the green house for newbies.

Lisa, FG, I love the idea of a tipsy blackbird trying to woo his mate.

Dove, Verdun, Panda all wonderful suggestions All my fingers crossed for you Panda to get to see these gardening professionals.

Rosie, is the soil affected by sewerage (foul water) or sea water? Or what? Once the land has drained, how toxic will it be?

I know when I was involved in a flood in London In 1976, caused by amazing amounts of rainwater and hailstones with storm drains blocked by Autumn leaves, the loos in basement flats were backing up, causing 'foul water' to contaminate people's flats and gardens. I don't know how long it took for the ground to be safe for growing veg.

I'm happy to make a trip in my car, with as many plants packed in as poss.
