          Well done Allan … you obviously know how to feel better :good: It’s great isn’t it, getting the plants/seeds etc going. I hope that you get a sunnier day with you than we have had today, and I am relieved in some ways , that I intend to do very little until I get back from that little holiday, plus, I love watching the birds at the moment; they are beautiful. Nightnight :rose:

        • Most intrigued Allan, by the thought of soaking seed trays in the rain. I’ve never heard of it – what is the benefit?

            rainwater for one Sheila!! It’s free :confused: :mad: :silly: and it’s better for the plants I am told, otherwise why collect it in stonking great barrels that stand around the peripheries? :dunno: :lol: Seems more labour-free too, but maybe not if you have to transport trays from one place to another … I like it :good: :rose:

          • Anne answered it Sheila,I have always done it after sterilising the compost in the micro,Rainwater has to be the best,No chlorine or fluoride or any other chemical added, :rose:
