As well as the tomato Legend seeds that I mentioned receiving last week Shelagh kindly sent me a second variety, Sunrise Bumble Bee, to try. This one is an organic, cherry type which is yellow with flushes of red.
She also sent me a few Centaurea montana Amethyst in Snow seeds as she remembered me being interested in this lovely perennial cornflower, which has white flowers with a purple centre. It’s an eye-catching variety, and if I manage to get them to germinate then grow I will replace the ordinary blue flowering ones I have with these.
Yesterday plot neighbour Trevor kindly gave me a black willow (Salix gracilistyla Melanostachys) whip to plant and grow. As you can see I’ve put it in a large pot to get established before planting out next year. I look forward to seeing how this does.
I’ve had three good plotting mornings this week, which included sowing some broad bean Crimson flowered seeds. I also sieved some multi-purpose compost then bought it home to use in the pots I’ll be sowing various flower and vegetable seeds in to start off on the windowsill.
Have a good weekend!
