I am a bit embarassed now that I have published my lists. It makes shocking reading doesn't it, and you must all think that I am stark staring mad!
In my defence can I plead the following?
I obviously had a very purple moment buying all those.
I think I got a bit carried away, and bought some, put them somewhere safe and couldn't find them.
I bought others on impulse and could not remember at the time if I had any of those at home.
I bought different varieties of the same veg/flower in case one failed.
One learns these things the hard way - but rather than condem me members of the jury, you can learn from my mistakes and think of it as my doing you all a service and not only saving you lots of time, but also a fortune.
I rest my case.
I could write a book on What not to do in the garden and up the allotment!
