I'm not sure what you are referring to - have you seen this on bags of compost or something?

Soil can be graded through a machine giving you different sizes. Often done now at a recycling plant. Your own garden soil can be brought into production easily with added compost and fertilisers. You can sow now, winter lettuce and spring cabbage outside. With the aid of glass cover many others can be sown. Broad beans, peas, onions. Anything else is best left till after Christmas.

Grade 2 may contain more twiggy and larger pieces of organic matter. Grade 1 will be sifted of this and finner- better for seeds,

Hi sorry I didn't get back to you - I think Dr B has answered all your questions! I have used toilet role inners to sow sweet peas into, but they do go a bit mouldy and slimey after a while. You can buy ready-growing young winter cabbages at the moment to plant straight out (protect from butterflys tho).

At the moment I'm using my greenhouse to start cuttings of my garden plants. Last week I planted out the latest of my lettuce seedlings. I wont sow any more now.
