said a couple of neighbours about the plot during the week and I have to agree with them! I’ve been plotting every day bar one for over a week making the most of the good weather.
As you can see the onions are starting to appear and I’ve sowed the first lot of salad mixed leaves, beetroot Cylindra and carrot Royal Chantenay Red. I’m doing a short row of each, and will do the same again with different varieties each week or so for the next month. I’ve put up the canes for the various beans I’m going to grow although sowing them is still a month away!
On Friday I planted three groups, each of five, of different gladioli spread around the plot. They’re Goldfield (a deep golden yellow) and Invitatie (two-tone pink) both of which are tall (90cm) large flowering ones along with That’s Love which is smaller (60cm) and has frilled flowers of rich pink with a red centre.
