LF - I would have been happy to have paid that for what seems a very good machine.

It will seem like an eternity until you can try her out.....just hope you'll be laying turf & not seed.

PS. The first Suffolk Punch I bought was just £26 new.

Think you're right, LF.....hope you get a quick sale for the previous one.

Your most recent acquisition will make short work of your planned lawn & give all the stripes you could wish for......excellent stuff!

PS. Don't know (or need to know) how much you paid for it, but can say it would cost around £700 new.

David, that white rabbit is on Google pics, did you put it there?

I'll take a look, Lizzie. I have a Flickr account, sometimes they arrive there that way.

Ashleigh - As I've said previously, October sown seed will give you flowers around mid-May, those sown in the spring will flower in July. To flip it, October sown plants will finish flowering in late-August, whereas spring sown plants will continue until the first frosts.....a mixture (if possible) of both is the best option.

I wouldn't pay too much attention to my 10c temperature figure, as I give it as a rough guide to what is needed for successful germination....as you know, all seeds need a certain amount of warmth to germinate.

Be assured, I don't walk around with a thermometer in my pocket  after gardening for more years than I care to remember, I act according to what I see around me. Regarding sowing outdoors, a good rule of thumb would be to keep your eye on your lawn, when it starts to grow & needs cutting would be a good time to sow your SP seeds in-situ......certainly don't go to the trouble of bubble-wrapping etc.
