Plans for this year

Postby Zuckuss » Fri Feb 18, 2011 8:42 pm

Hi Guys,

Right, i'm now at that lovely stage of the year where it comes down to ordering seeds and what are you going to grow this year? My situation is a small garden in a rented house, so i've only got a small of growing space (a couple of borders about 15m length in total) although I do have quite a bit of room for container plants.

So for this years crop i'm looking at growing:

Tomatoes - plum and cherry
Orange Peppers
Mange Tout
Butternut Squash
French Beans
Potatoes (probably new)
Mixed Salad

This probably seems like quite a lot, but most of my seeds I either have or am buying from premier seeds direct off ebay (I had almost a 100% germination record last year which is better than anything else I have ever had). I also do a plant swap with quite a few people so I always plant a lot more than I need and give away the rest (muller light yoghurt pots are great for this) so I was just wondering what everyone else had planned.

Get a wiggle on, Joe - you should be chitting your potatoes by now ;) .

I've already got my leeks, strawberry and chilli seedlings up. Later I'll be growing mainly beetroot, swede and sprouts, runner beans and French beans with salad catch-crops. There'll be a load of different herbs too.

Damn, chilli seedlings up already! I was going to wait till next month to plant them!! Mind you i'm only doing them on the windowsill in plastic bag propogators.

I suppose I had better go to the garden centre and pick up some compost this weekend.
