Buying seeds online/eBay

True, you just have to be a bit careful of those offering seeds of hybrids and cultivars, which won't seed true. 

Plant ID, updates and confirmations.

It a large part that's what my garden is made of. Formerly under enormous willows as well

The basis is former gravel diggings, long channels from the horse and cart era.

The previous owner wanted these filled and encouraged everyone, locals, builders, the farmer, to dump and fill. Some fortunately was soil.

Digging here is known as rock mining, I try and get at least a fork's depth with the half bricks, concrete, broken asbestos, plastic toys, removed

We shifted the plastic to the tip and most of the carpets. The large lumps of concrete made steps and a 'rockery'. Scrap metal made sculptures.

Things grow, choose the plants to fit what you've got. Get some more topsoil if needed. Make the most of what you have

I don't think the April sun in the uk is strong enough to damage a sweetpea Catie.

There's a growing sweet peas thread on the forum

Have a look through that and if your question isn't answered already ask on there and I'm sure David will
