Fred are you growing anything as lowly as butternut squash in your massive empire??? I could do with a bit of advice...have got 5 humungous (probably spellt wrong lol!!) plants blocking the light on my windowsills (there are grumblings from his nibs cos EVERY windowsill has something on it and closing curtains of an evening is becoming 'difficult') well not actually blocking but they are definately hale and hearty, I have a spot cordononed off by chicken wire (so the ancient and immortal cats left by son when he moved into his own house....cant poo in it, (god I live a sexy life!!) that was manured a few months ago and I know they need a metre square-ish each, might just squidge 'em up a bit lol...anyway I was thinking of putting them out and putting some of those plastic storage boxes over 'em to keep the frost off....AM I ABOUT TO KILL THEM??do they need it to be boiling hot or something?? didnt do too much research on know when you just pick a packet up for no particualr reason?? ok maybe not you....thanks
