Mark 1963 They have changed who the seeds are from hope they will still be good, I don't mind who they are from as long as there are free seeds and good info 

NGCARDS I like all the seeds so far, let us know how you get on with them

I will sow more as I go along will need more seed compost

Snow mainly all melted away now

So here is the pics from the potato day

This is the row of organic potatoes, then the rest is not organic seeds potatoes grouped in 1st,2nd and main crop

Here is the runner bean seeds Enorma the only one you could have this year, they sell them for £2 for half pint glass, the way they sell all the beans, broad beans and peas except peas £1 for half pint glass.

This is what I purchased the 10 potato bags with the French beans on, the potatoes and seeds and the trays on the side, now all potatoes in egg boxes chitting

Here is another pic of the pea and bean seeds, except the pea show perfection that is a small pack from a stand, so I now have lots of seeds and runner beans should grow this year

Here is the potato you wanted Edd they did have it, if you still want then see if you can get it from

Roy this one would be a good one for your plot, also available from the link above

We have snow

Weyplotter the peas are called show perfection - say to grow 1 seed per 9cm pot per a cane that you are growing them up if doing the cordon method 

Woo2 the only thing is I do not have space for any more fruit trees until I get an allotment

Hello Ginagibbs, It may well be new little muck boot wellies for me this year as I have a cut in one which has got a bit bigger as I keep bending down and wear them a lot 

Nearly sowed seeds today but had to much other stuff to do

Sounds a good idea to warm up the soil, I still have wallflower that needs moving up to the train station garden in my veg patch ended up being a bit of a nursery bed
