Seed buying

Posted: 30/12/2011 at 17:55

Want to give Celeriac a go also will be growing my onions from seed for the first time,  extea work but a big saving if it works as I'm looking to grow 300 plus as we use so many. Always try new varieties of seed potatoes but hang on to one or two that I have done well with before (Pentland Javelin has been  consistant over the last three years).

Likewise planted garlic in  seed boxes and put them in a cold frame about five weeks ago, they are about 6 in tall already so will move them to the allotment over this weekend.

Last year planted direct into the ground about November and the snow we had (midlands)  was not a problem.  Only planted in the cold frame to get a earlier crop.
