Trying something different this year.
I usually only concentrate on my Double Tuberous Begonias.
Last year i grew some foilage Begonias for the first time, and will be doing so again this year.
This year i have decided to try and grow something edible. I planted some tomato seeds earlier on, in the propagator. They came up, and yesterday i potted them up into seperate pots. Whilst at the garden centre i purchased a small cucumber plant, which i potted into a slightly larger pot yesterday. I have also ordered some Strawberry plants. I put Strawberry plants into Google, but most of what came up had offers on which meant i would have to buy far too many plants. But i found a site with some plants grown in Wales (i think it said) where i only had to buy 5 plants, much more suitable. And grown fairly local, as Shropshire isn’t far from Wales!
I intend to grow them all in pots and tubs, because nearly all of my small garden is slabbed with the greenhouse bases, paths, and in the summer a stable base to enable the Begonia plant pots to stand up outside if they aren’t going to make the show. They still make a lovely display in my garden, even if they aren’t quite show standard. I just have to watch that I’m not putting them in full sun where it will burn the leaves.
