Veg seeds for next year...

Posted: 25/09/2013 at 23:08

I bought seeds at 50p a packet, reduced at gc, mixed leaves,radishes,broad beans,. I've got Brassica seeds left from this year. I always get fresh onion and parsnip seed as they don't keep well.

runner beans and sweet peas for cutting, I will see how well they dry.

Deadhead all the flowered shoots now, and prune back to the rosettes of leaves. If you give it a bit of feed, it will start flowering again soon.

Just generally tidy it up. It's a bit late to take cuttings now,but if you cut off any likely shoots, you could give it a go for replacement plants for next year.

Welcome Phasmid. Hope your seedlings get on well.

Keep cutting the flowers off, give a feed with tomato fertiliser or miracle grow or phostrogen, and pray there are no frosts.

Yes, I would glyphosate mares tail, after trampling on it.

 Make sure it is all gone before replanting.

Its all C's and D's to me.
