Just back from the September meeting of the Milford Horticultural club, where Mum and I have been members for a few months. Tonights talk was about growing Sweet peas by Roger Parsons, holder of the National Collection. Despite saying I wasn’t going to grow any more I have come home with four packs of seed. I chose Millenium (crimson), Gwendoline (deep rose on white), Cocktail (maroon/violet bicolour) and Margaret Hastie (lavender stripe on white) and hope to have some blooms for the summer show next year.
We were also give bulbs to raise for the spring show, I have Narcissi ‘Gobler’ and Chinodoxa Forbesii ‘Pink Giant’. I will have to do some research as I have not grown bulbs for showing before, I usually just plant them in the ground and hope!
