marge been to garden club.
Hi, thought I would tell you all, I have had a super evening, my husband Roy, came with me to my monthly garden club because we had a Speaker – He was Joe Maiden, who speaks on garden matters on Radio Leeds.
He was very good, informative and funny. He works closely with the R.H.S., at Harlow Carr in Harrogte, he said he did classes on veggie growing.
He has got a source for getting “florist buckets” which come from Holland with stocks of flowers in. They can be re-cycled into potato tubs. One chitted potato per tub, you can get four crops per year. If you use potato variety Swift, they mature in eight weeks into tiny baby new potatos, work your dates right and you could time them for Easter Sunday !
Garlic growing, A garlic bulb has 12 /14 segments, plant into small plant pots, of push lots of segments into a container, you can use tops as chives in cut and come again fashion, or grow them on for later planting into the soil
Idea for parsley, grow in hanging basket by front door so you don’t have to get feet wet when harvesting.
When planting into open ground – a £5 plant needs a £10 hole.
