They're easy to germinate Fishy, sow now, leave outside. But although I love them and keep trying more it's really too dry for them in my garden

There were cedar shingles on our house roof when we moved in. Been there 30 years and leaking like a sieve. But they looked very thin and I've seen chunkier ones than that on other buildings. 

I think they'd age for gracefully than plastic.

Hi hollie.

You need to add the vinegar cold but boil the spices in it first, unless it's spiced vinegar.
