Jean,just because it says March to May  does not mean in cold temp' most seed companies base the sowing on the south of England or France an old saying "if the soil is too cold to put your bare Bum on it , it is to cold for seed" unless of coarse you have a frost G/H .

Hi again ,two pictures of "cheep path" I constructed the path from 3x1" timber found in a skip and bought 12 mts of good quality weed control fabric €20 and bark chippings @€3 in Aldi each . the thing at the bottom is the only shelter from the elements ,there was no digging involved

Hi all it's a late night or an early morning, but anyway, I did like the double raised bed that Monty had ,but I think I would use scraped scaffolding boards they cost between €2 and €4 each not very expensive , if you want to build a garden path but don't want the expense dig out your path to 10 or 12 " secure boards either side and fill with builders sand to a dept of 6" pack it well and lay your cobble or reclaimed brick on it and tapper down ,fill gaps with dry sand cement 6 to 1 mix .

Hi ,may i suggest that you screw the trellis to battens of wood  2x2 lengths in first that way if you need in the future to paint or maintain the fence you won't have a problem removing any plant material.
