Window ledge style heated propagator - any good?

Posted: 07/02/2015 at 20:14

Tootles that looks good, great going with the seed sowing, I want cut flowers this year as well as you,  I have the same little trays lots of them but not the bottom bit just lots of trays and lids, a few on my window sill radiator underneath

Lesley have you got the compost ready?

Hello Ginagibbs

on rules of our council website W3 You must erect a clearly visible number on your plot, good they do that if like I read somewhere you get a plot then you make sure it is the right plot unlike someone you don't want to be digging the wrong one

Ah Roy you know about Network Rail vandals or so called the garden clearance team - I volunteer at a train station garden and they have strimmed off some of the plants we put in before they go around once or twice a year,  shame you have lost a bit of windbreak from you plot may be get a bit of that windbreak fabric - like GWRS has    

GWRS sounds like some bits getting done

Sean added a new video and met with Rob the winner of allotment challenge at Brighton's Seedy Sunday on the 1st of Feb he knew before we did I could see Michelle in the background from the first Big allotment challenge and Allotment wars - I thought about going but was a bit knackered from the potato day the day before
