Window ledge style heated propagator - any good?

I am on Holiday end of Feb beginning of March so not sowing any seeds until we get back , could be a bit late but that's the way it goes this year 

Put some broad beans in last year at the allottment , under cloches had to take them off yesterday as they where getting to big , never done that before so wondering how they will do ?

I have 2 boundaries of Hawthorn and personally I think they are great , the one at the bottom of the garden is full of birds and nests and they " do not " mind when you cut it or if you use shears or electric hedge trimmer 

I am sure willow would work as long as you keep them cut , you can also grow other things through it 

best of luck 

New allotment OMG...

Fruitcake , always nice to see a picture ?

last year somebody put a post on about Cape Gooseburys and I saved the details on my iPad , bit of a coincidence I thought , as I fancied having a go , always like to try something different each year

Ginagibbs , I to had a problem with cats using my Garden as a tiolet , friend suggested using Teasal and it worked , holly leaves should have same effect 

Did suggest to O/H about getting our own cat but as she doesn't really like them so that was vetoed 

Watched the Allottment challange last night , wish I could grow Cauliflowers like those , can't be good at everything , enjoyed the show

Have used it , but did not like it seemed to dry out to quick , might be OK mixed with ordinary compost or those water retention cystals 

I know some people love it , everybody to there own

Mike to to hear from you
