Reply to annieseed: thanks for the suggestions. Regarding your point about gathering information from around the country, we're always looking for ways to make the site more 'local and personal'. The next step in this process will be the 7-day weather forecast for gardeners, which we're planning to launch later in the spring. I've just asked my colleague on Gardeners' World Magazine, David Hurrion, about plant trials, and he told me that there are no immediate plans to run any ourselves, as we aren't in a position to run formal trials, in the way that, say, the RHS or Which? do. However, there are free seeds tomato and sweet pea seeds available with the April issue of the magazine, and it would be great to hear on this forum how people are getting on with them!
