Chilli apache have done really well in GH two yrs running. I'm not impressed with golden sunrise toms. Tasteless and too watery.
Courgettes - black beauty and all green bush did well. Yellow Zucchini ok. After trying them in pots last yr, all grew better this yr in the ground after soil was well manured in autumn, will try all again. .
Aubergines - black beauty will grow again. Chad -any variety seems to do well. Betroot - detroit did well, burpus gold not so well but I'm trying it again next year and I've a new variety to try from France.
Might try fennel again to use up the seeds but I can't get the bulbs to bulk out best I've achieved are very flat bulbs with lots of top growth which is fine to use as a herb.
Could go on forever about veg, and don't like to say never again but brussels, carrots and big brassica's are a no, no for me.
Will grow foxglove again but not as many, didn't realise how big they'd grow. Bellis, cosmos and sweet william will all be grown again. I'm gonna grow sunflowers too but the smaller multi headed varieties. I've found flowers trickier to grow from seed and won't be growing anything which says sow in Jan, Feb or March in the flower department.
