Looking ahead to April, well the change in weather is always a bonus, not only have I felt happier, the garden feels & looks happier. Lots of fresh new growth & seed sowing a plenty!
Seed potatoes have been planted between 25 tubs. I plant in tubs due to space restrictions & for convenience too. Far easier to empty a tub before dinner than take a spade to the veg plot.
After having the best success ever with carrots last year I will be growing them in the same way. I will sow them direct into troughs & keep them in the greenhouse safe away from carrot root fly. To shake things up a little I have a packet of mixed colour carrot seeds as well as the more usual orange.
It is also looking promising on the fruit front too, my yellow raspberries look to have settled in well & sending up new shoots. The fruit trees are blossoming well & the Rhubarb will be ready for picking soon.
