Hello , wondered what tyou of fencing you have ? 

Is it bamboo fixed to something ?

It might be worth visiting a few gardens , even stately homes , just to get some idea of what you like , much better seeing it for real

Have you got a seating area ?

What ever you do enjoy your garden

I agree with Topbird if it has to be abandoned in April seems a total waste

However if the children are interested in growing , lots of allotment sites have a plot that a school uses or could use , has it been considered whether one may be available locally ?

best of luck 

Window ledge style heated propagator - any good?

Had blight at home in potatoe bags just cut the tops of and spuds in ground OK

Seed potatoes ordered from Kings not arrived yet , egg boxes saved for chitting

Fruitcase best of luck with hen house , people who have chickens on our allottments are using " rat proof " feeders to stop the problem 

Hard frost last night so decided to cut some wood up at home , will go up to allottment over weekend

I must admit I would like to known how many of these new jobs are zero hours , again can suit some people but I think is wrong is stopping people on zero hour contracts working else where ! 

When I was at work we used to use Annual hour contracts eg. 1200 hours per year and we paid 100 hours per month whether you worked it or not as long as you did the 1200 per year , which they always did , good management
