Starting to think about Autumn planting?

With summer almost over its time to start thinking about autumn planting. Preparing garden beds and sourcing new and interesting plants. There is still a number of plants looking good in the nursery despite the heat and lack of any rain. Our website will soon be updated with a number of new and returning to stock plants, including some from our new edible plant range which is growing well.

I really enjoy growing herbs and edible plants, but I am also very interested in the history and folklore of plants. I find it fascinating learning about historical uses and folklore of plants. So I thought I might include with each blog's ending an interesting piece of folklore about a plant I sell.

This weeks - According to folklore eating leeks in spring will ensure good luck for the rest of the year!
