Well put, Fairygirl.  The first comment re the bulb planter unnecessary .  I never even noticed the implement anyway.   What I was wondering was the value of lengthy clip demonstrating spring seed sowing, now that we are October.

Got a great laugh from Dahliance quoting Cicero, recommending a camera!

As the others have said.  Loads of space.  I abandon my crop every year as too difficult to pick, but then I have Jerusalem artichokes growing through them too!
