The growing bug has bitten again. After seeing the garlic on the allotment coming through on Saturday, I have been itching to sow something else.
Of course, I could have waited till February to get going with the broad beans. However….. there was a discarded seed tray on my plot which I thought would suit my purposes very well.
Actually, I don’t know if it will suit my purposes very well, never having used a plastic seed tray before, but I have read that you can sow your broad beans in such to get them going before the February start line. So, they are now on the only available surface which is big enough to accommodate the seed tray. Makes me realised the potential usefulness of a conservatory, though I guess a heated greenhouse would do just as well. It would up the cost of growing your own, though, wouldn’t it?
