as all gardeners should be, I sowed some broad beans on Monday. I haven’t had much luck with them the past two years so wasn’t going to bother but decided that there was space for some. I bought a packet of Witkiem Manita at the trading shed last Sunday and sowed about forty seeds.
On Friday I sowed a few tomato seeds at home, doing four pots each of the ever popular Gardener’s Delight and the yellow one Golden Queen. I make no secret of the fact that so far I’ve failed completely to grow my own plants but being ever optimistic I’m hoping for better luck this year. I will let you know how I get on!
Yesterday I put up two wigwams, each comprising eight six foot canes, for my sweet peas. I’m growing Spenser Choice mixed colours and Kings High Scent which I’ll be sowing direct, two seeds for each cane.
