    From the magical world of ebay, got two sizes, the 32 plug trays and the 50 plug trays. Cheapest I found them was 22.95 before for just 1 tray.

    That's just what I was going to ask Andrew about WiZeR, I've never bought anything off ebay though as I'm too frightened of getting ripped off. Nothing ventured , nothing gained though I suppose.
    I've taken the plastic cover off my veg. bed today, weeded it, added some chicken manure pellets & some garlic granules to it & covered it with netting to keep the cats & birds off.Also potted up a nice Magnolia stellata plant which I got in the post free from Gardeners' World Magazine offer.
    Into every life a little rain must fall.

    I've just treated myself to 128 cells for 20.62 delivered on eBay. Not bad, goes against my new policy to not spend so much money on gardening. But should give my carrots a good start.

My peas, beans, sweetcorn, sunflowers and squash have all germinated and I will begin hardening them off in a couple of weeks. Aubergines still small and I have yet to pot on my peppers and chillies. I have one set of tomatoes to pot on (tumbling tom). Somehow I have ended up with 100 tomato plants, I don't know what to do with them all. My potatoes are still chitting as I still haven't room for them. My onion and shallots have been in the ground for about 3 weeks and are growing away well, as is the garlic. I will be sowing leeks, cabbage (Andrewo, I haven't forgotten I owe you some savoy seeds, PM me your address as I'll be opening the packet this weekend), brussels in seed trays and hopefully making first sowings of carrots, parsnips and beetroot straight in the ground - still haven't finished digging yet though...
    I'm glad i'm not the only one who has ended up with loads of toms - i have about 30 moneymaker and 25 incas (plum toms). I am going to sell the excess at work and give the money to charity.
