If it's that four day seed, we're expecting big things to happen tomorrow! :D

I can help you with some advice on how to grow grass indoors Jason.. Pop over when all this virus business is over and I show you how I grow it. Much easier indoors as the birds can't get to the seeds..... :wave:

The more we watch this, the less it will grow. Like a watched kettle boiling more slowly.

Its come to something with this poxy bat flu lockdown that we are literally watching grass grow.
I mean I have even ended up autoglym-ing the barbecue as ran out of things to polish.

Take the paving slab out the back of your Capri and put it over the bald patch with a plant pot on top! Sorted :cool:
