These looking ok?

They are alright at the moment Christine.

When you see roots out of the bottom of the pots, tip out and carefully pull apart and pot up seperately! you can use the same size pots for now.

Thanks Gemma, I think that as I opened them 3 years ago they are just no good this year. I thought they germinated about the same time as the leeks, maybe they take longer, cant remember!

Its ok Tetley, I did use a wooden stake through its heart.

Don't squish, put them out for the birds, you have to check they haven't wiggled away though!

I didn't know Verdun liked eating them, I will save them up and pop them down to him.

 Leeks are up, I have given up on the Onions, used the same seed for three years, think I was pushing it?

I will buy more Bedfordshire Champions, still not too late.

Dont despair of a conifer hedge, this is mine, I know several regulars have seen these piccy before, but just to show what can be done in a very short time. the only things I bought for this was a couple of tubs of chicken pellets, BOGOF. I bought 12 bare root shrubs, 20.00 from Amazon and I bought the asters and some Penstemon bare roots in the winter, of which I have now taken loads of cutting for this year. If you have the time to spend it will reward you.

starting to dig out Oct 13

That wooden unit was from Argos, it had a cotton cover and is supposed to be a bedroom storage unit, ideal there and quite cheap.

The other side is just those metal and plastic shelves from Amazon, pack of 2 around 30.00.
