What new seeds will you be trying this year?

I grew Chard for the first time last year but didn't like the taste of it,I will still grow it this year but I will plant in amongst my flower borders. Chard bight lights make a stunning display of colour mine are still growing in my veg bed from last year.

David Austin Roses, are they worth it?

The nursery where I work grow David Austin roses under license to David Austin, we are a family business and I think grow exellent roses.

William Shakespeare is a good David Austin rose having said that I find the rose heads on most David Austin roses are so big they are no good for cutting and putting in a vase.
