Back to the plot this morning; and I’ve finally moved the broad beans, and courgettes into place. They look a little floppy at the mo; so I’ve given them a rather good soaking. Think they will need a little more staking. Worryingly spotted a number of small holes in the leaves of the beans. Something to keep an eye on.
Also planted out 4 courgette plants; mindful that they ‘don’t like being transplanted’, and since two out of each set of 3 seedlings came up successfully, they are nestled together in little pairs. I can’t be the only gardener who hates culling the smaller, weaker seedlings.
And finally; 4 onions, grown from seed (planted back end of January) at Hadlow. Refugees from my ‘allium bed’ that has been converted to asparagus.
I’ll need to add some staking for the runner beans, and I’ll pop in a couple of sweet pea seedlings (the only one that actually germinated) to aid pollination.
Hope we get to see some sun soon!
