Plastic lid?......Only at night, being mindful not to generate too much daytime heat.

That's good Gg......living where you do, you could wait for a little while longer, alternatively sow them and keep them somewhere safe outdoors....be careful of mice.

Here in the Midlands, temperatures towards the middle of next week are forecast to be 14c by day & 9c by night. If this holds true, I'll probably be sowing my SP seed......this is of course in a cold greenhouse (or coldframe) not indoors or in a propagator.

Anyone further north, I would be wise to sow for sure.

Taken delivery of this pair of Draper secateurs today and have to say I'm delighted with them. I have to say it was the wooden handles & slightly retro look that appealed...Having said that, I've always trusted Draper tools and found them to be of good quality without being outrageously priced.

Bit of a nightmare at this time of year, I've managed to keep mine clear with fortnightly spays of 'Roseclear'.

Potato berry???

Actually. potatoes & tomatoes are members of the deadly nightshade family -  Solanaceae.

The poison in those potato seed fruits is  Solanine, this poison is also present in green potatoes which shouldn't be eaten either.
