ROSE HIPS AND GORGEOUS CRAB APPLES
FOR NEXT YEAR
Don't leave the soil bare over winter, grow green manures, they grow quickly and you can dig them in next spring providing you with all the nutrients for the soil.
We grow Phacelia Tancetifolia green manure, as it not only looks stunning
but also attracts beneficial pollinators
WHAT TO GROW NOW ??
The Sicilian monk, Franciscus Cupani, was writing a Flora of Sicily and in 1699 sent seed of Lathyrus odoratus to various institutions and plant collectors.
Then appeared Henry Eckford, the creator of many sweet peas we grow. He worked as a gardener until 1888 when, aged 65, he set up his own nursery at Wem, in Shropshire, and dedicated the rest of his life to improving and expanding the small band of sweet peas then available.
You can grow 3 in a pot ,toilet rolls or as we do in guttering
|Nothing better than the sweet perfume of a bunch|
