THANK YOU for the most interesting article on gardening ("Sweet peas and porridge", Review, 2 July).

The one mistake is that, as a prisoner, I don't get paid pounds 1.50 per hour but pounds 1.50 per day. It may seem a small point, but for the prison population it is important. There are many outside prison who would love to get pounds 1.50 per hour, and we certainly don't.
