    • Afternoon Jenny. How nice to have an OH who takes you off to the pub for your sunday lunch, I hope you enjoyed it :-)

  • standard compost for me, our local nursery has done a deal with nursery trade and we can buy the same stuff they use – it is great, I use a propagator for starting most of my seeds, although some just go in the cold greenhouse, prick on as soon as seedlings are big enough and keep doing it until plants are big enough for final transplant
