Weekend Gardening Tips Jan 15th 2016

Friday, January 15, 2016 @ 10:01 AM

Arrgh!! Chilly weekend coming up for us all by the look of it. I just want to get on with some growing…

  • Sow some broad bean seeds indoors or under cover for an earlier crop. The best way is to get your hands on some root trainers and tray with a lid so that the early little seedlings can develop nice strong roots. If you don’t know what they are or don’t have any have look here. Try the broad bean variety ‘Meteor’ which are widely available and work well for me :)
  • If you’re worried that all this cold, wet soil is going to slow down your crops this year, you should have a think about gardening in raised beds. Read more here and have a look at this fantastic video by Ray and his gorgeous friends to see how easy it is to do.
