I looked into a greenhouse but I have delayed my decision until later this year

As a trial......

Sow indoors IN HEAT ?

I use The Real Seed Catalogue and they are a seed producer and do not have a manned phone for problem as they concentrate on growing

? On their onion seed packet it says you can sow indoors IN HEAT early Jan / Feb

? What do they mean by IN HEAT

I can leave the seed tray in the front room over January and February until they have sprouted

? Any thoughts friends please

Worms in Manure Bags

Will do

Reason why I ask is that on radio 4 GQT they were chatting about worms coming to the top of the compost bin which the panel said was because they were "unhappy " due to the manure being too hot or wet or dry etc etc

I would not want to waste the worms as they will be working for me over the next few months

I suppose the sooner I release them the better and they can get to work

Im waiting for the "cold weather " to break down my plot so I can easily apply the manure

Separate question........Why have we got a post about Strictly Come dancing..Am i missing something BTG

Worms and Manure

I have rough dug a plot and have the manure to add when appropriate

? When we say "Let the worms in the manure take the goodness down into the soil " how long does it take for the little blighters to do their job

? Do they come up and down or how does it work

? Does any one have a website that explains their actions and timing please

Thank you
