Just received my tomato seed from The Happy Green shop. (eBay) 
good price, quick delivery, I know they’ll all germinate as I always use them.
all this for £4.59 post free. Loads of tomato seeds will last me years.  14 San Marzano as a free gift.

  • Must have a look there because that's a really great selection/bargain.
    Usually get mine from Moreveg but they're looking £2.75 for 12 Sungold seeds :'(

    There are some " Gadget Books " that show things to do things that are completely useless but the above that I got from my local hardware store is amazing.

    It does what its supposed to do and its easy to use and clean.

    The tool is 35 years old now so may not count but my pair of Felco fencing pliers is just the job when working with wire. Oft copied and still available in pretty well the same design now.

    As it’s my birthday next week and I won’t see my kids bringing presents, I’ve treated myself to some Felco secateurs,  looks good, what I most like is that they can be closed up a bit for small hands, most of mine I can’t reach the grip.

    Wouldn't be without them.
    Worth the expense.
    Excellent quality and if needed you can buy replacement parts...eg spring/blades.
    Can be taken apart to clean.sharpen etc.

    Lyn, happy green shop above has a website. No need at all to be paying eBay (sorry, detest them). 
  • LynLyn DevonPosts: 19,901
    Most of them have,  the reason I go through eBay is that if the goods don’t arrive, eBay refund your money instantly whereas some companies, and I’m not saying this one,  but some,  you cannot make contact with them,  someone mentioned here just now that the phones are off, the emails don’t get answered and you can’t contact them.
    EBay is just a safeguard.

    If they’re happy to pay commission to eBay that’s fine by me.

    I lost the all money I paid when my goods never arrived, for an expensive transaction. EBay could not possibly have been less helpful. I’d had loads of cheap transactions that went ok, but when it goes wrong it has to be big style, eh. 
  • I am pleased with my Hellebore 'Walberton's Rosemary' this year--I've had it three years and finally it has decided to put on a fantastic display of flowers, all through Christmas and this month.
