Over the coming months gardeners will be drawing up seed lists and browsing catalogues, which will certainly help us get through the winter in preparation for next spring.
Having only a small plot I only need small quantities of vegetable seeds so I usually buy most, if not all, from MoreVeg. All I need for next year, along with a few flower seeds, will only cost me just over £10 post paid.
I always look forward to receiving Chiltern Seeds catalogue during December more to read rather than for what I’ll order from it.
As well as buying seeds I have plenty that I didn’t use this year, and also a lot of annual flower seeds that I’ve collected recently.
I’m sure that I’m not alone when I say that I keep changing my mind. A while ago I mentioned that next year I would probably grow the tall sunflower varieties Earthwalker and Moonwalker, but now I think I’ll grow Autumn Beauty and Music Box Mixed instead.
I never cease to marvel at the fact that I sow seeds which just a few months later have grown to produce beautiful flowers and tasty vegetables.
It started wet here this morning, with thunder and lightning, and there’s rain forecast for most of the coming week so I guess that I won’t be doing much, if any, plotting.
Have a good week!
