There was a smatering of rain about today, so decided to sow the first of my hardy annuals. I nipped down to my local garden center and bought myself a packet of Unwins Cornflower seeds and got stuck in. It’s a great feeling to know next years crop are on the way already.
Usually I would only plant three rows in a bed but in these ‘Super XT5’ beds (made up name…humour me) I have planted five rows…this will meet with disapproval from the floricultural community as it will make it more difficult to keep weed free and to harvest. But I need to use the little space I have more efficiently…and I don’t think it will be that difficult… The beds themselves are just over five foot wide.
