Muddyfork what sort of yield did you get?
I have bought hessian gravel carrying bags which take up to 65Kg. Just unwrapped one - Measurements as per I mentioned before and certainly manageable,
Pots have always been brilliant from Poundland as you say, but I have other cunning plans for them this year, to maximise veg plot space. I can line bags up along the hedge. Nice to know I can start in Marcg, I have always waited until Easter or as per the old gardening tip - Lilac Time. (When the first lilac flowers come out). Am going to try Belle de Fontenay this year for a change - Nearest taste I can get to Jersey Royals apart from Pink Fir Apple.
Re Maincrop - Just can't wait that long to tuck in, and really cheap here. Recommend Apollo - Fantastic Roastie and Baker. Not sure if it is available in UK though.
