Fleece or Bubbloewrap

Poundland fleece does work but only once , you can buy heavy duty fleece that's washable but more expensive 

Personally I'm sticking to the cheap stuff , even if it doesn't last

Gardengirl , have grown Albert Bartlets purple puds , they where excellent and they do stay purple when cooked , would recommend mashing some , so different having  purple mashed potatoes 

Sounds like you had a good day 

Anyone done any gardening today?
