 I've found this one Obelixx. I haven't ever bought seeds off eBay but might give this a go.

I bought a few plants from a garden centre that's closing down. Now about to make a cuppa and get the big book out to look up what I have bought!  I love buying random plants as every now and then it results in discovering a new favourite that I'd never have normally purchased.

Wow Bob. That's a lot of garlic!

I don't change the soil in my pots.

I use out of date seeds.

I don't clean my water butts out.

I eat fresh custard out of the tub when no one is looking.
