Seed Sunday

Coming along nicely Aquilegia
Coming along nicely Aquilegia



We made a very productive start to the Harvest Garden year on Sunday with the support of Chiltern Seeds who very kindly provided us with masses of free veg. and flower seeds. The list below barely made a dent on our supplies SO if you would like to bring on some seedlings at home to plant out in our Harvest Garden early June email us your address and I'll post you some out ... most requests can probably be supplied.

Also big thanks to Louise Joly for all her help and advice with the planting ... she's very worried about lots of 'leggy' seedlings coming back so email support may be available for the concerned!

Whilst waiting for our lovely new WWTHB website and plant data-base I will have to make do with blogging a list of our efforts. More pictures for the curious on Flickr.
