- sweet peas
- tomatoes - just ordinary, got lots of cherry and beef stake ones
Last year we had a lot of problems with slugs- like most people? I have read about a natural slug repellent called Sluggone, which is pelleted sheep's wool and is supposed to keep them off as they don't like the feel of wool.
Carrots are supposed to be easy to grow, but last year I sowed them 4 times, the first two did not come up, the 3rd the tops got eaten by something and the 4th got carrot fly. We had spent hours stapling plastic sheeting all around the bed and sprinkling dried lavender as Basil from the plot next door said it would work! So this year I have ordered some Envirormesh- the carrot flies cannot get through it- ha ha!
In to the greenhouse this morning! sowed some cherry tomatoes, sweetpeas, salvia and broadbeans, it might be a bit early, but we will see. My friend gave me these plant markers, they are lolly sticks painted in that lovely Farrow and Ball greeny bluey grey paint.
Growing peas in drainpipes!
