SUMMER 2002

The flower beds are looking very colourful this time of the year. Many of the seeds I used this year were 'freebies' attached to the weekly paper Garden News and I must say they have proved to be of very good value. I found the 'Statice' a particularly good cutting flower, lasting more than 2 weeks before looking a bit faded. The Canterberry Bells suffered in the wet but the lasting display of the Rudbeckia 'Becky mixed' has more than made up for it. I always save a few flower heads of the French Marigolds and this will give me plenty of seed for the next year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following photos are just a few of the summer veggies. It has been a good growing year and I am particularly pleased with the Celeriac (which in other years has mostly run to seed) and the Swede.

 

Swede - 'Ruby'

 

Celeriac - 'Prinz'

 

 

Beetroot 'Tardel'

 

Sprouts 'Brilliant'

 

Sweet corn - 'Minimop'
