nearly full that's 3.5" .


Which brand?

flowers . still raining here ,can  you Gary or Pennine post  a picture of what you are seeing


anyone else think this 'extended' winter, means a good summer

not a chance ,the type of summers we had as kids back in the 60,s and 70,s are long gone when in the past 30 years do you remember snow in march . I was down on my allotment on the 17 march and empty ed a rain gauge of 3" of rain and between then and today there was a further 3" of rain ,i think we are in for a very wet summer again this year , the only way to counter this is to cover your growing area with plastic or glass


Is it worth having a garden professionally designed?
