Yesterday's post brought an envelope from British Sugar, labelled 'Spill Kit' - on opening there is a polythene bag and a cable tie. Nothing else, no information.
I am assuming it is for seed spills, but the bag has holes in it (presumably anti-suffocation) which are slightly larger than beet seed.....can anyone suggest why BS are sending these out?
