Re: LED replacement bulbs

I’ve replaced all my bulbs with led bulbs but didn’t even have one flower from any of them must have been the wrong compost or lack of watering :lol:

Re: Coal shortage

To my knowledge the heritage industry will be aloud to use coal but the problem will be the supply chain which will have disappeared because of insufficient demands.
