I'm glad the peas germinated okay. I was a little worried because of their age.

Expect the garlic in February. Not much of my garlic has emerged yet either.

There's no reason you can't use potting compost for the greens, but you know me, I hate buying this kind of thing. Is it from an Irish peat bog? Is it full of chemical fertilizers? Does it contain compost made from collected household waste, and did someone put their cat's litter box into it?

Why don't you just dig up some dirt from your garden or allotment and use that instead? If it contains fresh compost, manure or you otherwise think it should be sterilized, you can put it in the oven for 20-30 minutes first.
