was going to grow some of my cucumbers in there but they got eaten by slugs so no go - I really like cucumbers too

when some of the plants get moved to the station I will get a gh staging in there some of it as it is a bit broken it was a 4 tier plastic gh once - will use the space for my pricked out seedlings wallflower - holly hocks and growing some more plants

Slugs keep hiding in the floor matting in there and under bags of compost,  I keep chucking out the slugs
