    woodland trust are doing free trees and hedgerows Free trees for Spring 2011
    Like other I would reccomend the RHS, we're now working on level 4, and have recieved seeds, a copy of grow your own veg, 2 paper potters, hand tools and 50 T&M vouchers for completing the first 3 levels - well worth it.
    Imagination is everything, it is a preview of what is to become.

    The best place for that advice is in the bin. I suggest you ignore it and grow as many tomatoes and potatos as you like safe in the knowledge that they will never check up, no child will ever fall ill and noone will ever think of reporting it.

    That's exactly what my teacher said. We're going along the "potatoes? Those are potatoes? Are you sure?" route if randomly questioned by an inspector type

    We've just been given a 200 voucher to spend at our local garden centre and 30 age 7 tee shirts. That was nice of them
