    Hi Ben, sorry, I meant in modules as i haven’t even done that yet as it has been so cold and miserable here i didn’t even bother with them. Need to catch up now so it will be a busy, but hopefully productive few weeks! Thanks again.

    Dear Ben, Thank you for my seeds, they arrived (incredibly quickly) on Tuesday. I went a bit mad as couldn’t decide which ones to leave out! I am really looking forward to growing them. The ones you sent me last year were fab so i can’t wait to pick a vase full.
    It looks like it might be going to warm up here at last, so will have a go at planting them as per your very helpful your guides, this weekend.
