Garden Notes – The Race

Garden Club The Villager

What a lovely time of year. Every thing is growing madly and you are desperately trying to finish staking plants before they get out of hand. It is Chelsea chop time again. This works very well on phlox and campanula lactiflora. If you cut half the stems you can extend the flowering period.

Farm Notes

The Villager

When writing the Farm Diary last month the opening comments were about the wet ground conditions – how things have changed. The spring crops were planted in a 10 day period leading up to Easter finishing on the 13th April and now could do with an inch of rain although the seed was placed into moisture and is chitting. When looking at my 2016 notes I see that spring planting was completed on the 28th April so we are about 2 weeks ahead of last year. What is now required for a large harvest is regular rain (ideally about 1 inch per week) with warm but not hot days. The important factor for a good harvest is plenty of bright days, especially in May and June, for the plants to photosynthesise – grey gloomy days are not good for yields – the same as any gardeners. ...
