That looks about the depth of water my garlic is currently sat in KEF. I know they hate being water logged but I really don't think there's anything I can do about it since EVERYWHERE is very water logged! I tried to dig a ditch between them to at least drain it to one side but the ground is beyond saturated. I think I need a giant sponge!
Can anyone tell me what this plant is?
I was given it to pass on to my mother but she didn't seem to want it to I took it away with me again. Unfortunately because it was meant for mother I didn't pay much attention as to what it was nor how you were meant to care for it. Oops!!
Sunday saw me plant my autumn onions that I had put in pots owing to lack of space. I still didn't have space for them (vegetable plot still under lots of building rubble) so ended up putting them in the bed intended for the raspberries (oh well - there's always next year) - the poor devils were looking a bit big for their pots and I had never intended on having them in pots for so long.
Most of the rest of the weekend was spent moving soil around the garden but I did get my peppers (soaked in tea overnight) planted into square pots. I just hope they germinate now I've got them sat in a plastic propagator thing on the windowsill. I'm a little nervous it wont be warm enough.
