Hi Mick  :wave:

The box I got was from Gaugemaster and come as a mixed box of all sizes

They are not difficult to make just a tad messy
So make sure you have plenty of Newspaper spread about
Also when you are adding the foliage try not to sneeze  :hmmm:
Or BAD things will happen  :-[  :D

Sounds about right  :doh:

If I remember I will ask In the Garden Centre Tomorrow if they have any seeds  :hmmm:
And believe me the only time I have green fingers is when I airbrush early diesels  :uneasy:

I know this is a really old post but I am thinking of getting some Seafoam seeds to grow, has anyone else done this? Mick I saw you thought this was a good idea 👍
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Sorry, George, but the box is still languishing in the cupboard until the layout is ready for 'planting' :-[
