I never thought of plastic corrugated sheets - genius! Thanks Verdun - I wondered how to stuff it into the ground! Off to B&Q tomorrow...
I would like to buy some cloche hoops for my veg garden. I have looked at commercial cloche hoopss and also blue water pipe! Has anyone got an opinion on A) the best cloche hoops to buy and B) the idea of using blue water pipe as cloche hoops!
Thanks for your help.

Ah - that would certainly be easier! Thanks.
I have some lovely red monarda flowers and the bees love them. Is it easy to collect seed from these flowers and will they come true? I want to grow lots more next year.

Can you provide a temporary weather shelter for the exposed cells? Perhaps a box or even the patio table will offer some protection. In a few weeks the queen will go off and hibernate and the workers will die. Rats may be in the compost bin.
