    Seed selection

    Seed selection

    Recommend me some seed...

    Well its that time of year that I'm looking towards next season and buying seed. I was lucky to get some seed from British Red who was very generous as was Toddy with her blackcurrant cuttings.

    Harvest time

    Bit of tidying

    We all have to learn.... I am all the time... but I was taught by my old man never be afraid to ask others more experienced.. I do regularly and many on here ( you know who you are) are very generous with their time and patience. The open pollinated parsnips I had off BR are fab... so are the...
