Week 33 (2019) Update

The first planting of Lepidium “Green Dragon” has been flowering over the past couple of weeks but was cleared this week.  Despite what looked like premature budding soon after planting, eventual stem length of the crops was 65 to 75 cms.

The outdoor planting of Eryngium has established well and planting through Mypex seems to be a viable option for this crop and has certainly maximised growth and minimised weeds.

As usual the CFC has again provided samples for a wide range of purposes including the Jonathan Moseleys  British Flower demonstrations  at the RHS and other flower shows.  This week was the turn of RHS Rosemoor and our Astrantia (see left had photo) was one of many subjects delivered by Nursery Fresh to Jonathan (see right hand photo).
