Re: Seed Saving and Mildew?

Thanks grahamhobbs and Odsox, you've made me a happy bunny today :hugish:

I havent shelled the peas yet, so will go through them and pick the one i know are fully ripe and see if i can dry them out, once dried i will do a test on them and *fingers crossed* they germinate!!

Re: Companion planting and rhubarb
