yes selling out.. i had to plant some more runner beans as sold all extra ones and had people wanting more... so i planted up extra 20 for them at 25p each and htey went... very fast.. only cost me compost.. so not worried.. as they bought some flowers plants at same time..

i ahve to say i sold £52 worth of plants in last 3 days.. amazed.. everyone is starting to think about their tubs and summer colour.. amazing what a little sunshine will do. and they are all 3 for £1.50 or the larger perennials are £1.00 each.. so all plants have nearly gone.. so not so much to water now

@debbie11.. yes leave doors and windows open.. i have had mine open through the night as well.. thou close door slightly as the pesky sea gull gets in there..

also..and this may sound strange.. but is use old net curtains to shade mine.. they still let light in and are cheaper than proper shading.. and i just hold in with insulation clips..  thou on one side that gets full sun all day it has proper stuff on outside as easier to fit..

@inkadog.. well they look good.. i love natural stuff in the garden

i have been using j arthurs bowers 3 for £11.00 they are 6olitre bags.. best i can get.. i do not buy cheaper that that as no good.. i have not found anything more than small bits of plastic on one and few twigs.. but last eyar i found they were all fir/hairy type stuff.. which clogged my seive.. took them back and got a replacement.

must say all my plants are doing well (mind you need some rain) and seedlings have done ok this year.. not really any diff from last year.
