Exciting times! Having just purchased a mini grow tunnel we now have lots more space to grow things undercover. It is only 6m x 3m but it is a lot bigger than the greenhouse we were using up untill now. The space will mostly be taken up at the moment by seedlings before they are ready to be planted out. Although a few young plants have gone into one of the raised beds to hopefully give us earlier blooms. So far we have cornflowers, scabious, snapdragons, nicotiana and some dill planted inside the tunnel. Once the seedlings get planted out into the patch we will add some large pots to grow other things in, and squeeze in a few tomato plants and the odd cucumber for my son Henry. After all he has to have some kind of reward for opening and closing the side vents! I can just about squeeze down the side of the tunnel to do this - but he seems to have lots of fun doing it.
Meanwhile on My Flower Patch things are coming along nicely. Lots of new perennial plants and shrubs have gone in. The tulips are just about over - boo! The alliums are just starting - hooray!
So if you are after some local, seasonal, gorgeous flowers to decorate your home, office or to give as a gift then get in touch. We will have bouquets a plenty to go around.
