Afternoon all , Figrat .are you going to leave your new raised beds stacked ( nice paint job by the way) if you have the space you can knock the pin out of the hinge and join each of the boxes together an make one long bed .

Cheers Derek

I thought it was time that a thread was started (my apologies if there is already a known thread) regarding any negative or positive comments us gardeners would like to share amongst us ? this could be about a purchase of plants - good or bad ? it could be about level of service you received etc etc etc, but what it will do is identify and let others know of your experiences.

is this not similar to Ranting (Mob Rants)

Hi Blackest , I use seed trays that I buy in Aldi I also buy their compost as I find I do get good quality and providing you give adequate protection all seeds that can be started now , I wait on till they have true leaves too plant out weather permitting .
