Good info, but the title subject and video content do not match. More info and examples on the actual cutting bed layout, possible alternatives, composition of plants or thoughts on yearly planning...., this video seemed to focus on sweet pea tepee and planting out.

I concur fully with mum61's reply dated 24/11/2011, if this is correctly dated why are you continuing with this clip which does nothing to explain creating a cutting patch, even I could mention 8 or 10 plants by name and say plant in a prepared bed, what is required here is hows, when's, where's and why's. A little disappointed, feeling somewhat let down.
