Plant of the Month
The Autumn sown broad beans have survived the dreadful Winter weather and are now providing me with a good crop. I like to harvest mine when they are about 6 inches long, top, tail and cut into inch long chunks to cook. They're delicious and minimum waste. Autumn sown beans don't have greenfly either.
The apple blossom is looking beautiful now. The spanish bluebells were in the garden when I moved in and they give a nice splash of colour. I hav done a major clean-up in this area, removing the posts and broken wire supports from the step-over apples and sowing wildflowers - poppies, love-in the-mist, marigolds and other pollinators.
Tulip Apricot Beauty is thriving in this heavy old concrete pot I bought at the local Scouts' fete about 40 years ago. They're getting crowded now so I will lift and divide them, replant the pot and find a new home fo the rest.
