    They stopped putting people in the stocks in the 19th century. Most of them were then taken down. shame, I think we should bring them back. Instead of three month rehabilitation orders for the scum that burgled me, they could have a day in the stocks and I coud throw rotten tomatoes at them... or something harder like a turnip...or a cricket ball.

    10 week stocks, brompton stocks, or night scented stocks.?

    It almost time to start brompton stocks from seed for next year.

    10 week stocks for bedding... you're probably a bit late for bedding plants, the garden centres have started half pricing all bedding plants around here.

    Night scented stocks...buy a packet of seed and sprinkle in the flower bed.

    Steve, have you tried the nursery run by volunteers around the Sketty entrance to Singleton Gardens where the botanical gardens are situated or maybe the entrance to Swansea Market ???

    I've seen a few plants being sold there by the Veg man.

    I also live in Swansea
