Just had a look at the link BrummieBen, looks like a good tool. What's the part in the middle?

Turned mine this morning as best I good with a fork, looking good. Took great pleasure that the junk mail went straight from letter box into Monty

advice for starting a seed swap event

Posted: 11/05/2013 at 18:09

Hi cotty, only started seed swopping this year, mainly on here, but I did go to one locally and that was in March. It was a very relaxed swop so much so that I forgot to take any seeds, and just gave a donation for any seeds that I wanted.

The one I went to was advertised in our "green book", maybe check with the council and other groups to see what's out there already or as a way to advertise.

Think the hardy plant society has a yearly one which might be useful for information.

Good luck with yours, I've really enjoyed all the swopping I've done so far

Wet and dull day here, will be out to doing a little more charity shopping later and may be potting on a couple of things.

Have a good day everyone

No gardening here, but a lovely day trailing around the charity shops and picked up a lot of books at 50p each or 3 for a £1. Hardbacks included

Garden spending is so much more fun chicky. 

I could easily make room for another. Are you just starting new compost in each  or are you moving it between the bins?
