Nant, to keep those supermarket herbs I find it best to transplant into a slightly larger pot using some bought compost/growing medium, place on a old saucer or bowl and water from the base, so when the bowl is dry - a little more water. They do need a light window sill. Baby bio now do a plant food for herbs, but don't be tempted to overdose them.

Since I only have space for 4 potato bags, and have not done that well with expensive seed potatoes, I tend to just plant shop bought spuds that have chitted while waiting to be used They do very well

Can't get no inspiration!

GardenG, I agree; I am going to take Sweet Peas far more seriously this year; they are so glorious and in the past I've been a bit haphazard with them.

Have you got big window sills?

You could start with cress; put 2 sheets of kitchen paper on a dinner plate, make it nice and damp, sprinkle on cress seeds. Keep moist and in a few days you can harvest. You can grow bean sprouts (I use mung beans) alfalfa, radish sprouts etc. I would think some kinds of lettuce could be grown. Mushrooms can be grown indoors too. Good luck with it

Except for me KEF; I'll be 66 in about 3 weeks -  it's just hit me!

But I DO run every morning and go to dance classes

I think I don't really believe it, never thought I would get this far!
