The Cutting garden – January
It’s January – what more can I say? This has been the first year that I haven’t sown hardy annuals to overwinter and plant outside as it warms up. Instead I am experimenting. I will start sowing a few things very soon as I have noticed that in previous years there hasn’t been a great deal of difference between the Autumn sown crops and the Spring sown – the only difference being the amount of time I have to spend in the depths of winter looking after the overwintering crops. We shall see…….
The great Autumn bulb plantathon of 2017 should produce a bountiful harvest though. I planted hundreds of Double Daffs and Narcissi, Alliums, Rannunculus, Gladioli nanus and Anemones in the beds and with the exception of one variety of Anemone – they are all doing great.
