Seeds for 2020

So I had a week off last week and although it was a very busy week I did manage to get down the allotment for a few hours.

I didn't do anything on the actual ploy....very windy and very wet...but thats okay as my first visit was purely to sort out what seeds I had so I would know what I needed to order for this year.

My seeds are kept in my greenhouse in some wonderful seed storage containers I got for gifts a few years ago.

These seed tins are great...protect the seeds from frost,
light and little critters. I need two to be able to store
everything!! I love the fact that I can put the seeds
in to separate compartments!!

Polly came with me to the plot
as I didn't want to leave her home.
She was very happy sat in the
chair watching the birds!!

Just a quick pic outside the greenhouse..thought
it would be good to show you the location
in which I will put the polytunnel!

I have quite a few 'multi-pack' seeds.

These all came from the pound shop..great value
for money!!

They often give me the chance to grow something
 I usually wouldn't and I have  always had good
germination rate from them...great if you are
on a tighter budget or just want a little more

There are also a few flower seeds, I don't put
flowers in the allotment very much but do
like a good selection for at home!

I took pictures of the multi packs as it was so much easier than writing them all down but also in my trusty gardening book I have a list of all the other things I have for planting this year (I would show you a picture but things are scrawled in it very badly so I doubt you'd manage to decipher it!!). I am very well equipped this year and only need peas and runner beans....this is great as it means I can get a few more unusual bits which I like to do each year...this year even more so as with the poly tunnel I will be able to grow stuff which needs a little more warmth!!

So the newbies for this year are going to be; Crystal Apple (squash), Honey Bear (squash), Lady Di (runner bean), Jewel (aubergine) and soya bean.

Have you got any new things you are planting this year??

  1. Your post makes me excited for spring to get here. We have another month before it begins to warm up enough for that here.


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
