Our Swiss chard has been brilliant this summer and it's still going strong ... we find Foordhook Giant is the best for us.  


We love beetroot but didn't get around to sowing any 'cos of my accident ... this year if it wasn't sown by the 21st May it didn't happen

I've just picked all the borlotti beans ... I think they're as dry as they're going to get outside so now they're spread out by the glass wall in the studio ... they're beautiful

Hello Barbara


I'm afraid they'll either dry out or go rotten.  Bulbs that flower next spring need to be planted now and won't wait ... they're not like seeds and won't keep from year to year.


However, if you're going to be desperate for some flowers in the garden by next spring (and I would be) why not buy some cheap containers and plant bulbs in them ... they'll smile at you in the spring and then next autumn, when the garden is ready for them you can plant them in the garden.
