What you can actually do in ten seconds

A big shout to Gerry Hectic who told us about this compilation when they were originally looking for contributors. This compilation has over 200 10-second tracks and is released by ATTN:Magazine here. What’s great about it is that ALL proceeds from the sale of the set are donated to the charity Cool Earth who work alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change.

There’s ten seconds from a variety of sources including Gerry Hectic, Justin Patrick Moore and Madtone amongst many many others! Cheers to Jack Chuter for including our track!

Gardening bargain of the week!

Found in WH Smiths in Holborn today, the February issue of Kitchen Garden Magazine with 10 packs of FREE seeds! We know the packs you usually get with magazines are probably not as packed to the gills as the packets are down your local garden centre but these ain’t pretty bad! Some super stuff too: Tomato, Parsley, Radish, Leek, Parsnip, Cabbage, Beetroot, Lettuce, Carrot and Peppers. A bargain and an ‘arf!

Non-blunt business

tools for change

Big thanks to Fliss C for letting us know of the Tools For Change campaign. A few years back they helped her community garden project with reconditioned tools repaired by Wandsworth prisoners. So if you have any unwanted blunted hand tools (“no power tools, workshop tools or secateurs please”) bring them in to a Wyevale garden centre between 9 May – 9 June 2016 and receive 10% off new ones! Cos’ it’s for a good cause!

There’s no such thing as free seeds

Thanks to Lewisham Gardens for letting us know about more free seeds! These are available from M&G to celebrate their sponsorship of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The kindly people there are giving away a collection of 11 different herb seed varieties, how good is that?

Fill in the form here and you’ll get your ‘erb selection within 10 days they promise. Get your application in while stocks last etc.

Never had nothing

Anyone else lucky with the Evening Standard Sunflower seeds giveaway the other week?

I forgot all about it until Friday when a posh padded envelope arrived through me door with the free pack of seeds. If you didn’t, don’t worry there will be more free seed offers hopefully coming soon and we’ll be keeping an eye out and post them up as soon as. If you hear of any before we do, do let us know. Every little helps!

Heinz are giving you a chance to win a pack of tomato seeds when you “like” their Facebook page (taking a note of your profile and “friends” into the bargain.) You can have a try but I’ve just had a go but was “unsuccessful this time, please keep trying.” I’ve now “unliked” Heinz.
