As I was filling the compost bins the other day at the bottom of the garden (the ‘wild’ bit) I looked around and blow me down – the primroses are in flower! Never seen anything like it before. Basically we haven’t had winter yet, just a continuation of autumn with temperatures ranging mostly between about 7degC and as high as 7degC, with a few excursions below 5 but very rare. So the plant world is a bit confused I suspect, and probably the wildlife as well.
I have managed to check my seeds and found that there isn’t much I need to buy. I did get to a garden centre the other day and buy some of the ‘Maya Gold’ potatoes that were good last year plus some ‘plum’ type tomatoes which I seemed to have none of in my collection, and that’s about all I needed.
