We are a local garden centre in Birmingham and have just had our stocks arrive this week.

To grow potatoes successfully set the seed out in a light frost free room to allow the shoots to sprout. They will be ready for planting when the strongest shoots are 1-2 inches long.

We feature more on our garden blog see Growing Seed Potatoes

Hi i have just come across this post and remember reading How to get your pond ready for winter

A pond heater or air pump are the best options. Air pump being the most cost effective but remember when installing ensure the air pump is located in a covered area such as a shed or greenhouse and that the airstone is placed no lower than 30cm from the bottom of the pond, to ensure warmer, lower water regions are not cooled.
