I'm sowing today after buying JInnings No1 at the weekend 

I hope to dig my trench also this week wish me luck


Oh dear, James....not sure about John Innes No1  John Innes seed compost is what is needed or indeed any other seed compost.

JI No1 has too many nutrients added, which may result in too much over winter growth. If it isn't too late, your JI No1 will always come in handy for potting-on.

Extract from my opening post: "Next you’ll need seed compost (not multipurpose). My own preference is for John Innes seed compost; this is loam based compost although non-loam types are suitable, provided it is specifically for sowing seeds."

In case of mishaps (got the T-shirt) I did suggest in my previous post "Keep in touch, re sowing the seed."

River Trent.

Nikki - Thanks for sharing those pics of Pontcysyllte aqueduct at Llangollen. 

I've never had the pleasure of a visit, although I have travelled on the steam train from Llangollen along the Dee valley.....some lovely views along there.
