I agree with Frank; I have been adding grit to compost for a couple of years and it makes a big difference.

Verdun, I recomend you take a shoppers trolley or similar to Chelsea. Also take lunch and a thermos. The food and drink is really expensive as Maud says, but even if you can afford it, it is very poor quality. I once had a Pimms there, it was coloured water with bits floating in it. Not at all how friends make it!

What an impressive idea, I especially love that there are heritage seeds being swopped. Anyone interested in being involved in the Fens?
