Welcome to the vine. Sorry I do not have any spare as I have only just started myself. Try Mrs Nesbit she had loads a week back, it is in seed swap further down.

Cheap greenhouse? Depends what you need. I have one of those very cheap plastic ones (£25?), the plastic has lasted about16 months, now ripped to shreds. (I could have made it last better if I'd been more careful tying it securely at the very outset and protecting corners with bags of compost etc). A new cover will cost me about £15 max and I reckon it's a good investment at that price. Mine is walk in with one shelf down the side. I've now also bought an even cheaper 4 shelf one for about £10-15 (just four shelves in a cover). This time of year is probably when you will get bargains.
They are cheap and nasty products but at the price I think they do a fair job. Certainly I can't afford £150 for a cheap permanent one.

The Local Paper/post office/corner shop or e-bay are all good sources for greenhouses. The one thing I will say is get one bigger then you think you need cos it will be too small in no time!!
The other alternative is to make a greenhouse or Polytunnel. Pigletwilie made his own tunnel for a fraction of the cost of a new one & there are some plans for a greenhouse on our lottie website (see link below)

What sort of pumpkin seeds are they? Is there anything in particular you would like. I have loads of saved Giant Winter Spinach and Avonresister parsnip also lettuce and beans later in the year.Bright Blessings
If at first you don't succeed, open a bottle of wine.
The Pumpkin seeds are from last years pumpkins cleaned and dried naturally, i did the same the year before and the seeds grow
you need to watch out for the slugs though
I fancy having a go at parsnip
PM me on how many you wont and i will put them in the post

Have to agree with Mr Dobby that these seeds are great, we got a fair few decent sized and very tasty Pumpkins from them last year, and still have lots left, so if anyone wants any, please let us know! All you need to do is send us an SAE and we will return some immediately!
