What about the brassicas and onions?
As I mentioned in the last blog. the brassicas and onion sets are also up and looking good. I know many people now sow their brassicas in seed pans and then plant out but we’ve never done this preferring to sow direct into the open ground… this has its plusses and it minuses but overall we feel it works better for us. Our two greenhouses are full of alpines and bulbs at the time of year when we would sow into trays and there are only so many window sills you can grow veggie seeds on. Yes we obviously waste seed by sowing in this way as we have to thin out the seedlings as they grow but it is also a lot quicker than planting into seed pans, pricking out etc., the risk of damping off… at the end of the day it is swings and roundabouts I suspect.

And in the control bed too…
Living where we do growing onions from seed is a no brainer here are the onion sets in the moon bed coming through nicely – the control bed was sown a little later and are slightly behind right now.
