Raised beds

supern, it really is so fast to make your own; treated timber gravel boards fastened at the corners by screwing into some 2"x2"s that you have bashed into the ground. I use an electric jigsaw which is not a scary bit of gear at all.

I have always felt that pre-made ones are overpriced for what they are.

Where we are. the Big Map.

Brilliant to see the map, it may help shift all these plants to The Somerset levels. The problem is, the big gap through the centre of England; Northampton, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Swindon, where there are NO members apparently.

If anyone travels to Northampton from the Bristol area, could they PM me please?

gardenj, glad to hear your computer recovered and brilliant about all those seed packets.

Sweet pea, it does look awful; perhaps google Horticultural Societies in the area? Or just Gardening Clubs and there maybe an Allotment Group /Club /Society?

Orchard Lady, whereabouts are you based?

Rosie, I seem to recollect that you travel a bit for your work, are you ever near Northampton?

Lyn, it wasn't just the flooded houses, I think that far more gardens were flooded and also some gardens were bulldozed to create a barrier against the rising water.
