Rain, rain and more rain!

What a miserable week, downpour after downpour.  Not much that can be done on the plot in this weather but I’m still harvesting the winter veg, some brussels, cabbage, swede and kale.  Apart from booking next year’s holiday (Brittany) sanctuary can be sought in ordering seeds for next year.  You can get great discounts on seeds if you are a member of your local Horticultural Society or Allotment Association, last year my local society achieved a 50% discount on the catalogue price.  I have plenty of seeds in store and most should be good for next year, but I always need to replenish the stocks and it’s the time of year when you can start planning how the plot will look and reflect on what went well this year and what you will do differently next.  Our society uses Dobies who have a great selection of seeds and plug plants to choose from.  Other good options are Thompson & Morgan, Suttons and Mr Fothergills.  So get cracking and get your order in!
