I bought 2 in Jan, conical one is about 50 cms and the ball is 20 cms both for £15! in lovely containers from HB. With a bit of TLC both are very happy in the porch.

Cost of the hobby of gardening per year?.

The cost of our plot depends on the size- mine is half £15 + £5 PA for membership. We have a shop!! and can buy stuff at trade prices like seeds compost netting etc. We a have a committee with tons of rules, It is a beautiful place, plots are divided with manicured grass, we have various competitions, best plot best scarecrow and heavens know what else. 

The cost? Most thing have been given or got from freecycle. The pleasure of eating your own stuff is priceless.

I do spend quite a bit on my garden but have never added it up.

I've sown tomatoes chilli and sweet peas in trays sitting nicely on the window sill. I've also grown potatoes in a bag as an experiment but will grow the rest directly on the allotment, chitting very nicely at the moment.

Gardener come.....

Steve- As a pet Dr would you by any chance have anything I could use to put my dear friends the moles to sleep?!! As a Veggie I couldn't possible shoot them.

Brilliant idea Forester2- now let me see how my Russian is? or perhaps I need to talk to the 'chosen one.

LOL went to the library this pm and right in front of me on the table was a kids book for sale-Moles babies!! for 20p- no I didn't buy it.

I get moles in the back garden too but as the side garden is pretty big they have more to tunnel I guess.

Glad I made you smile SS.
