Gardening Tip

Make a cheap cold frame by digging a trench and lining it with polystyrene. Then lay a few bamboo poles across the top to support a thick plastic sheeting to use as a lid.

finish off with a layer of gravel at the bootom - this will heat up during the day and keep the "cold frame" warm during the night
