who wanted to buy some cheap seeds,

39p he spent,
now hes struggling to find a funny last line...
heat anyway...cheers.

The subflowers are superb,mine were massive last year.got about 20 seeds in the pack

I have grown Alyssum and forget me not and both have done really well, I recommend these seeds

I too knew a man from Leeds
Who swallowed a packet of seeds
Within half an hour his nose was a flower
And his toes were a row of weeds.

Got a load the other day

Just a thought..... carrots are so easy to grow & if you plant them at different depths in a bucket of soil on your patio you'll get lots of veg even if you haven't much space.X)

Thanks for this great tip. I'm a complete novice with no idea where to start.
Was planning to buy a whole lot of seeds and plant them in pots, then stick them in a greenhouse (a greenhouse that I am yet to buy as have no idea what type to buy!)

Bought the pre grown Strawberry plug plants the other week, they are El Santa Strawberries and they are starting to flower.

Cheap and easy way to make a Propagator is to use an old fizzy drink bottle 2ltr, slice it in have around the middle, fill the bottom with peat/soil plant your seeds, slide the top over the bottom part of the bottle and you have a cheap Propagator.

Half the veg seeds should've been in by now (in the greenhouse) and be mostly ready for planting out but anyways since you are going for pots to max your cost per space, pick stuff that you eat but is more expensive ie. potatoes home grown are nice but take up room and are cheap to buy.

Go to Thompson & Morgan web site or RHS and search for what you have bought they both provide good advice for growing for free!

Another tip is buy the cheapo verve rubble sacks from B&Q the ones made from nylon mesh - They were in the clearance bin a few months ago for £1 each - 80litre bags. They are great for growing stuff in. Fold the sides down to make smaller 'pots' and are very good for potatoes as you roll up the sides as you 'earth up'.

I already bought (from Thompson & Morgan) and planted most of those veggies but I can thoroughly recommend the varieties:

Beetroot Boltardy. - RHS award, love it pickled
Broccoli Purple. - Pro tip plant alongside nasturtiums to draw away butterflies and eat the flowers
Leek Musselburgh. lovely soup leek, get midget for salads
Radish French Breakfast 3. - Love this radish along with cherry belle
