Week 17 update

The first of the direct seeded fillers have been sown in one of the Spanish tunnels.  The aim of this trial is to see if can extend the season and both ends and also get 2 rounds through the tunnel.  We have sown, carthamus, bupluerum, Ammi, Dill, Ridolfia and Cosmos.  A further sowing will be made in a couple of weeks time.

We now desperately need some rain to break down the huge concrete clods in the outdoor area in order to strand any chance of producing a seedbed for trials planned in the next couple of week!!
