Have you kept a record of the costs?  The lights and power involved, and heating as well as compost etc - I'd be really interested in how much it actually costs to produce a tomato

Pond improvements

I've used bags of Scottish pebbles and large graded pea shingle for my pond - the GC also had some larger stones 3 for a tenner, so I had those too - I'd like one more big stone so shall keep visiting garden centres until I find the right one

Found a tree I would love to ID ....please help!

Good morning all   

Early to bed and early to rise here - and the birds are singing.

Looks like the pond's had a bit of a top up overnight - and the temp only went down to 12.6C
