Polytunnel Planting


The gardening year is beginning to ramp up. Last month, there were one or two things to get sown; in March there are all sorts of things that I need to get going. Many of those will be in pots for planting out in late spring but today’s milestone was my first direct planting out in the polytunnel beds – two rows of radishes (one each of ‘French Breakfast’ and ‘Icicle’) and a small patch of spinach (‘Gigante d’Inveno’).

I’ve also potted up some of the blackcurrant cuttings I took towards the end of last year. Given that they were (a) to prune the bushes and (b) to provide some indoor decoration, the fact that many of the cuttings have produced a decent set of roots while kept in water has been a bonus and, by putting the strongest into soil, I am hoping to get (c) some extra plants which can add to my soft fruit collection at the allotment.
