Swiss Chard

Posted: 18/01/2015 at 15:32

Chard is particularly easy to grow, sow water,pick eat! Swiss chard on toast is too good !!  Fry thin slice onion, little bit garlic in little bit of oil, add chopped chard leaves, let them wilt and serve in toast! Mmmmmmm

What netting do u recommend for the best - I scoop oak leaves with a fishing net daily and I'm thinking this year some netting would be helpful.

i have my first small dahlia in a pot - it's still got lots of buds and is flowering its socks off - do I really have to lift it yet? Seems a shame as it's now at its best ! Some neighbours have theirs planted in our clay soil, all year round, would It be better to plant if? I can't decide what's best.
