Strawberries have their own pots. Who knew? And now we have one.
Raised beds are a good for growing veg, due to drainage, soil compaction etc. Also, edging is important.
A lot of different stuff about tree rootstocks. MM106, anyone?
A bit about dual purpose apples and apple tree pollination. Yum.
A bit about preparing veg for planting from seed, thanks to this book, a gift from Sensei Paul and Rach.
The previous owners of our house had very… different… taste in plants.
Today we’ll probably learn some stuff about digging, dirt and hard, scratchy gardening work! We’ll be attempting to plant the following:
- Chilli (from Malaysia)
- Cucumbers (Balinese)
- Carrots (alicante)
- Victoria plums
- James Grieve apples
- New potatoes (sorry forgot about these! Got a new potato planter thingy)
Wish us luck!
