July 2016 (2)

The new propagator is finished and ready for the new season's cuttings (it already has 5 rosemary cuttings on the way).  The one on the left will soon be propagating seeds ready for planting out in spring.

This system is working so well, I'm thinking of growing plants like peas, beans, beetroot and carrots differently.  I have always planted these varieties straight into the ground, but by planting them in jiffy pots, I can bring them on in ideal conditions quicker and/or earlier in the season than would otherwise be possible.
