My seeds in the junk mail too ,they get mixed up in the junk - I think they should stick them to the front of the mag like they do if you don't subscribe to the mag.

It would be good if they offer lots of free seeds

Advice on garden improvements

May be you should make some raised beds in pattern shapes have a look on google some good ideas on there, make sure you add drainage in the bottom stones or something. You could buy some cheap seeds wild flower - good ones in 99p shop -sprinkle on and watch them grow or some plants, fox-gloves are nice and self seed them self well.  Maybe plan out on paper first you could use some thing like a garden hose to mark out shapes in the garden

Try the seed swap forum you could get some cuttings or seeds and some don't mind given them away to help others.

I have brought seeds from Lidl before work fine for me too - only thing is if there is seeds they don't have but I want sometimes easier to look though catalogues at home and order them off bigger companies.

But do like cheap seeds of flowers or veg

Really need some help, badly!!!!
