Dove what supplier do you recommend for someone wanting to start stocking up on seeds to stop them from pacing the greenhouse?

Dove I hope you're right because as fantastic as big us better is I'm a little worried it'll look like we have a moat!

Oh Fidget I am sorry. I hope that she's comfortable and isn't aware of any grumps going on. Its such a stressful time with emotions running high everyone is bound to have their own idea of what is acceptable to say to another.
Look after yourself and remember to encourage your partner to rest and eat sensibly when they can. You need to look after yourselves.

Keep safe and remember we're here for you whenever you need a sympathetic ear (or distracting ramblings from frustrated gardeners desperate to get their seeds in the ground and waving tape measures around trying to work out why anyone would build a gate too small for their latest purchase).

Gardengirl - the pond is bigger than my car! It would have worn it like a comedy poncho.

KEF - any idea where Hamza is based? I wonder if his parents could look on gumtree / freecycle for either a proper cold frame or at least the bricks he'll need?

We're getting a mini digger in for the weekend Nutcutlet as we've also foundations to dig for the man shed (fortunately he's quite distracted with project man shed so he didn't seem to mind my own larger than intended project).

Evening all!

Ever had that moment where you go to the place you brought a pond online from and stand admiring your perfectly sized well in proportion for your garden brand new and shiny pond liner....

Only to look to your left and realise that the one more than TWICE the size that looks more like a swimming pool than a garden pond has your name taped to it?

What do people think of heated propagators - are they worth getting? Or do you find you then struggle protecting your early seedlings once they're too big to remain inside? I guess if you have a heated greenhouse this is less of a problem!!
