A late ad­di­tion…

Garden News (UK) - - WHAT TO DO THIS WEEK -

The prob­lem of hav­ing an al­lot­ment is that gifts of plants reg­u­larly come your way and it’s dif­fi­cult to refuse them! Last week my son had a tray of sweet Wil­liams spare and gave them to me. I grow a few flow­ers on the plot as my wife loves fresh cut blooms for the house. It’s rather late to plant these but the ground still seems to have a lit­tle warmth in it. There was a spare patch of ground that hadn’t been green ma­nured so it was too invit­ing not to plant them. I only hope they es­tab­lish and pro­vide a few bunches in late spring. But the next prob­lem will be in the fu­ture when these are in full flower and stop my crop ro­ta­tion plan be­ing fully im­ple­mented!

I’ve found a small patch for some sweet Wil­liams
