Some of us are lucky enough to have a garden and many people are deciding to clear a patch for veg. It’s probably too early to plant seedlings, but safe enough to grow from seed. Rumour has it that some of the seed companies are overwhelmed by orders, so you may not get what you want or there may be delays. We have spoken to an allotment holder who suggested that people might have spare packets of seeds, maybe left over from last year, but still in date. We would love to hear from you if you have any suggestions, have spare seeds or intend to grow extra plants to pass on to friends or neighbours. If you don’t have much space, grow vertically e.g. Runner beans, climbing French beans, broad beans and even some varieties of sweet corn do well.
