The week before last I ordered all my next year’s vegetable seeds from MoreVeg. I always buy from them as they do small quantities at reasonable prices. I’ll be mostly growing what I usually do, but hoping to grow less but better.
Hopefully the broad beans Karmazyn won’t succumb to blackfly as they did this year, and the carrots Royal Chantenay will surprise me and do well.
I was in two minds about growing some beetroot but I will and have bought the variety Babybeat which only grow to around golf ball size, ideal for cooking and eating.
After I’d ordered these seeds and decided that I would grow more red onions than I have previously I found that the horticultural society trading shed won’t be selling onion sets Red Baron. What I’ll do instead is buy a packet of onion Red Brunswick seeds to sow direct and see how they do. If they don’t germinate I’ll plant some more white onion Sturon sets, which I also grow and are my usual choice.
I’ll be ordering my flower seeds in the new year once I’ve received and looked through the Chiltern Seeds 2016 catalogue. One item I’ll be ordering is cosmos bipinnatus Velouette which I really like the look of, and should go well with the white ones.
It’s been been unsettled weather with plenty of rain, and windy at times, but still noticeably mild so I wasn’t that surprised to see that these daffodil leaves have appeared when I looked round this morning.
Have a good week!
