Mince pies , I agree you need to start buying them now or even making them now so you can properly test them and the only way to test them is eat them

Market Research is what it is called

Hello everybody , I have just been given a pot of Parsley which I have put in the greenhouse , any tips on keeping it going over the winter ? Or should I bring it inside ?

Sweeping leaves up , have you though about a Garden vac to suck up the leaves ?

much quicker , give you more time for other jobs , only advise is if you suck them over bare soil it sucks up the loose soil and clogged it up , well the one I had did

best of luck with the Gardening

Winniecat , inveiw of what you are putting in I would definatly insulant , also if it was a really bad winter you put some around the plants as well 

the lowest tempeture I have recorded is -11 about 4 years go , I had some spuds growing in potatoes sacks for Christmas and they froze sold , complete mush when they defrosted

Last years Garlic as this years seed ?
