'Snow problem, spring is nearly here!

By Angie, Mar 13 2013 10:46PM

I visited the plot today briefly to survey any snow damage, luckily there was little to be found. No surprise, there were no plotholders on site today.


I spent the sunny afternoon in the conservatory sowing lots more flowers for the cut flower borders to encourage the pollinators. I planted:


- Echinacea

- Rudbeckia

- Cosmos

- Clary

- Corn Cockle

- Allium Purple Globe

- Antirrhinum

- Nicotiana Sylvestris

- Bergamot

- Candytuft

- Marigold

- Honesty

- Achillea Cassis

- Zinnia

- Eschscholzia Orange King


I also sowed some cauliflowers, spinach, beetroot and swiss chard which went into my home coldframe.
