Fibre pots

Yet again I've put seeds in fibre pots and before they've germinated, the pots have started to go mouldy. How can I stop it from happening?
I gave the windows a good clean and finished off with a bleach wipe before putting the pots on.

Washing powder (not necessarily eco-friendly ones)

Does anyone know if the same brands of washing powders we can buy here work better (i.e. may have a better "recipe") in other countries?

Witch hazel

Get it from Sainsbury's - a fair bit cheaper than Boots, as I discovered only a bit later that day.

Re: Pink and Blue

I don't recall now, but it seems that even "these days" there's still a trend for buying pink items, not necessarily just clothes, for girls and blue ones for boys.

Re: 101 uses for old and worn out clothes

Tights make good garden ties and they tend to blend in well and are soft against the stems. I know someone who has used them to strain bits of "skin" out of household paint. They might be a better option for the downpipe use that someone mentioned earlier.

Face cloth

Has any one use one for a length of time to be able to offer an opinion? Messrs Marks and Spencer sold an exfoliating cloth that was ...
