Day 9: buying seeds

Daily details from the garden to bring you inspiration throughout the year


Have you bought your seeds yet? I’ve yet to inventory my current collection – a sensible activity if unnecessary duplicates are to be avoided. Resist the temptation to sow anything too early, with the exception of hardy old things like sweet peas and broad beans, or micro-greens which will be harvested a matter of days after having burst through their protective seed coats. There’s still plenty of time, and seed catalogues to be perused.
