compared to many gardeners as I’ve now got nearly all the seeds I want for this year, which amounts to only twenty packets split fairly evenly between flowers and vegetables.
I’m not trying anything new or unusual and will concentrate on growing less better as I mentioned recently. The seeds are a mix of saved and bought, the latter from Chiltern Seeds and More Veg.
The annual flowers are calendula/pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites, centaurea/cornflowers Polka Dot, cosmos Sonata White and Xanthos, eschscholzia/California Poppies mixed, helianthus/ sunflowers Musicbox and Ring of Fire, nigella/Love-in-a-Mist Persian Jewels, tropaeolum/nasturtiums Whirlybird.
The vegetables are broad beans The Sutton Dwarf, climbing French beans Sultana, runner beans Red Rum, beetroot Baby Beat, carrots Royal Chantenay, cucumber Marketmore, sweetcorn Lark, and tomatoes Gardener’s Delight and Golden Sunrise.
Some things will be started off at home on the windowsill, but most will be planted direct between March and June. Like most gardeners I want to get plotting again as it’s now starting to get lighter and hopefully warmer, but it’ll be at least another month before I do.
Have a good week!
