Horticultural aide memoire No. 40: Plant spring bedding
One of the enduring joys of spring is the drifting scent of wallflowers from under an open window. Now is the time to plant them. Cultivate the bed well, incorporating well-rotted organic matter, and bring it to a planting tilth, level but not too fine. An edging of forget-me-nots always looks well and goes in first, so that you have a neat frame over which you step to plant the wallflowers. Grade these latter for size and fairly jam them in to keep them upright during the winter months. In April, you will be the toast of your envious neighbours.
