    Doghouse, if you're feeling deprived of enough gardening you could always pop down here and give a hand. About four hours a day should help out quite a bit. :blue thumb:

    wind damage

    Lost a plastic cloche and a bit of trellis between shed and house (about 4 ft-6ft) blew down. Not going to replace said trellis, but going to put water butt there instead.

    I always take those sort off, I didn’t think you were supposed to leave them on.I class those like a normal plant pot when potting up and remove.
