I think the berry is very poisonous.

I have never owned a propagator or a light box, my seeds do well

on window sills, worktops any free surface. If you sew them whem the days are longer, they have enough natural light.


If you have any seedlings that are leggy just repot up to their shoulders, you need to do this for tomatoes anyway.

Your very right Dove, not to mention they will rust on the joins!.  I have 3 ruined ones, the first has been replaced with wood, the othe 2 are over with honeysuckle still attached, I think the only way is to cut it down because i couldnt untwine it.

We put long stakes in the ground to support them, what is supplied is usless, but the tops went.

These are some of mine, they are just starting to shoot,I have never used a proagator, not sure if it may keep them too damp. They live in the conservatory facing south so get sun all day.

I suppose their insurance will cover new carpets kitchens and appliances but not the garden, maybe ruined lawn mowers but not plants and soil.

I cant see them being ready to set seeds and plant for quite a while yet, probably next season.

Maybe the seeds would be better distributed to willing growers as these people probably havent got their greenhouses up and running yet.

My metal arch lasted just 2 winters, it then went rusty on all the joins where the scews go in, then the wind bent them at the weak spots, OH has now made one from 1ft wide wooden trellis.

Very dissapointing if you have clematis weaving through it.
