Dear All,
plan B for outdoor seedlings is to moisten the seeds and then put them into a bowl containing Cayenne or black pepper (or both!) to coat them before sowing. The old advice used to be coat them in paraffin but this doesn't sound very sensible to me.
Regards Sally Wright.

So far I have made the frame and treated it with something called decking seal which I stashed many years ago. Here are some pics. Hope to finish it tomorrow.
