Our Autumn Reflections

We're patting ourselves on the back a little and saying what a great year 2018 has been, growing our own vegetables, herbs and chillies. It’s likely it is not entirely down to our expertise and hard work though and just maybe, the weather may have had a lot to do with it! But, gardening is all about dealing with the conditions you have and adapting to them and we've all had to do that this year. Watering has been a major activity for obvious reasons and we have had to limit our time away from the garden to ensure everything...

Fruits of our labour

June has arrived already and after a very dry May we are already watering everything in our West Yorkshire garden and have watched some amazing growth spurts during the last 6 weeks or so. Our courgettes are all planted out, tomatoes and chillies potted on into final growing positions and beans already arching up their canes. Our new seed varieties Aubergine and Sweet Peppers all look good in the greenhouse, along with our Burpless Cucumber and our new Crystal Ice Cucumber plant (kindly given to us by the green fingered folk at Let’s Grow Preston). Peas are flourishing, we’ve eaten...

July Blog - Reaping the rewards

We are now in mid-July, and are reaping the rewards from all the hard work done earlier in the year in the Seeds to Sow garden. Harvesting is now a daily activity, whether it’s beetroot, radish, turnip, peas, broad beans, asparagus peas, kale, spinach and salad leaves to name but a few. The courgette varieties ‘Ambassador’, ‘Romanesco’ and ’Atena’ require daily harvesting at this time of year to encourage continuous fruiting. This can provide challenges in the kitchen, as courgettes only keep fresh in the fridge for a few days, meaning that we have to be inventive and find new...

Out of May and into June

As we approach the end of May and move into June, we are reflecting back on a very busy month and looking forward to a fruitful June. For Seeds to Sow, May has been exceptionally busy, a key time for seed sowing, market days, garden shows and for finding inspiration whilst looking after a garden during a very dry (and at times very hot!) month of May. We’ve hosted a few market days and hopefully inspired some people to give a few of our seed varieties a try. Find out more on our facebook page; https://www.facebook.com/seedstosowltd . We’ve lent a helping...

March - a new vegetable sowing season begins

As I prepare to use the final of our fresh home grown produce from last year, a Jack ‘O’ Lantern Pumpkin which has stored fantastically over winter, I am excited that the new sowing season has finally arrived and that it won’t be too long until some varieties will be ready to harvest. Last years, Black Tuscan Kale, Perpetual Spinach and Swiss Chard ‘Bight Lights’ have all gone past their best in the last couple of weeks after a long and productive harvesting period, with the Kale having bolted in the recent early spring warmth. Our Parsnips, Leeks and Sprouting...
