cook. You can sow directly into the soil, but I prefer to start almost everything off in pots to give them some strength to resist the slugs!
The stalks are marvellously coloured and can be white, as above, yellow, red, and orange, so they can look great in flower beds too!Parsley…a biennial, so will over-winter perfectly and not be set back by frost if protected just a little, like above, using an old bottom-less bread tin.
Pumpkin and Butternut Squash…I grew these from saved seeds from the previous year. Just make sure that the soil is enriched with lots of well rotted manure, or good compost, for they are hungry plants! Apples…invest in a few apple trees…fruit trees will never let you down! I have planted around forty fruit trees of all varieties here at Bealtaine Cottage. When in blossom, fruit trees are a wonderful source of food for the Bees… Blackcurrants…the gardens at Bealtaine are infested with them! I have grown all of my Blackcurrant bushes from seed or cuttings! I have a surplus of Blackcurrant cuttings at the moment and these are offered for sale at this link… https://bealtainecottage.com/seeds-for-sale/ Bealtaine Cottage https://bealtainecottage.com/
