in a month or 2 it will be all systems go in the sowing of seeds etc
just wondering what type of heaters you use in your greenhouses
ive got a paraffin but looking at a friends today i shud have gone for a electric (you was right john).
ive put mine on tonight just to see what temperature i can get it was 6c when i lit it.
(i'm getting quite bored now) :)
feed the soil not the plants
organicish
you learn gardening by making mistakes
