GWRS you just need the weather to warm up a small bit so not to hurt yourself when digging, I expect it was nice to go to your allotment

good that you got fence sorted

Hello all, done my bird count not as many bird as normal, put more food out before doing the count as some had gone in two days, results on bird thread - was very cold sitting out in the garden for the hour,  as my bird feeders can't be seen from the house well

Later been to the station sorted out rubbish and bags of tin cans

Roy good if there are other on your site, the weather effects it, you get blight from hot weather then lots of wet I think and more on main crop potatoes, you should be fine growing in bags with fresh compost  

only one week and I will have brought my potatoes -  some for bags and some for a raised bed  - not sure what ones I will get

Which company to order seeds and plants from...

My seeds from Mr fothergills came today and one pack like you said Wills came in a small tube not had it like that from them before

only the sweetcorn came with a pic so I will be cutting pics out of the seed catalogue and putting them onto the packs

So Suttons and Mr Fothergills have been good before and still are good companies to get seeds from
