 is very deep mauve now that its fading, here it is before.

 Sunflowers, nasturtiums and runner beans, all done exeptionally well this year, its been a fantastic growing year.

Good shrub for covering a fence or shed. It make this much growth every year, cut right down in Spring. Called Solanum.

Echinaceas are the best for slugs, I know you grow a lot of those.

I usually sow half in the autumn half in the spring. whether its just where I live, but there is absolutely no difference, except you have to keep them over winter. This year I am waiting for spring to do the lot.

Whatever way you choose, the autumn sown ones need a tall pot,

I use root trainers, because they grow a long tap root. Watch out for slugs they love the new shoots.

Fruit cages - DIY options?
