Last Sunday I went to to the horticultural society trading shed to renew my membership, and buy onion sets and seed potatoes. More on the latter in a forthcoming post.
Some people may have noticed that I’ve not mentioned the society or shed for some time. That’s because back during the summer there was what the chairman called some silliness, and what I considered to be unwarranted stupidity. I resigned as a committee member and shed helper as clearly matters weren’t going to change, and hadn’t been there since. I also didn’t go to either the Annual Show or the Christmas party.
Both Monday and Tuesday mornings were bright and sunny so I did some plotting. I pulled up the last of the pot marigolds and sunflowers. The latter I’ll add to compost heap, when I restart it, minus the roots which I’ve cut off and disposed of.
I also pruned the blackberry bush, including cutting out all the dead stems near to ground level. There are already signs of new growth on it. The grape vine was also pruned back, now being the ideal time to do it.
Excellent service from Home and Garden Centre, where seed postage is just a £1, as I ordered a packet each Tomato F1 Sweet N Neat Yellow and Cherry on Monday and received them the next morning. I also received the flower seeds that I’d ordered from Chiltern Seeds.
Have a good week!
