Flouting the “rules” 2

What happened to the seeds I sowed on 21st February rather earlier than the packets indicated?

  • Walking stick kale germinated on 22nd March
  • Wild beet germinated on 21st March
  • Chinese kale on 21st March
  • Perpetual spinach on 22nd March
  • Sorrel on 21st March
  • Wild rocket on 22nd March

This may be slower than if I had sown them later, but all these babies, and many more besides, are currently doing well!

About Anni Kelsey

I love forest gardens and forest gardening, nature, reading and everything good about being alive. I have written two books - the garden of equal delights (2020) - about the principles and practice of forest gardening; and Edible Perennial Gardening (2014) - about growing perennial vegetables in polycultures, which is basically forest gardening concentrating on the lower layers.

    Having gone through your blog from the beginning to April I feel like I have hit some sort of jackpot 🙂 You have so far mentioned around 30 different plants that you are or have grown!

    As it’s raining today I am guessing that I may well get through most of your blog today.

    I’m busily writing down plant names for later research and plan to go through a seed catalog in the next few days. I have already started to plant some seeds in the greenhouse in October and a few have already come up.
