    Default What's everyone growing this year?

    As the title says, what (apart from cannabis!) will you be growing this year?

    Last summer was beautiful & I grew nothing due to previous summers being below par - FFS!

    But I'm a bit more prepared this year... so far I have:-

    Strawberry
    Kiwi (touch wood that it fruits this year!)
    Olives (picked up a small tree last weekend)
    Cucumbers
    Tomato (which I'll get on the weekend)
    and chilli

    So, what you got?

    Lots of herbs, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, beans, peas, swiss chard, potatoes, carrots, cucumber, squash, pumpkins and whatever else my old lady desires... Oh and lots of rhubarb

    Planted strawberry and blueberry plants last year hoping they're productive. Also have a few apple trees I planted a few years ago I'm hoping bear fruit. One gave me a few apples last year.

    Also dealing with a very productive and vigorous couple of hop vines. Might seperate them and let a couple climb some trees or a fence. You can almost ser them growing at their peak.

    I always plant a pile of stuff and its not all successful! Love the challenge.

    I might do garlic, marigolds and the like to ward off evil bugs. I still have a fair amount of marigold seeds, so yeah. Love those little flowers.

    Roses are my second favourite plant..and I really like to put a lot of my time and effort into shaping them, making sure they are sprayed for blackspot/rust/pests and fed correctly. I also love to 'air layer' them, as it took me literally 10+ years to find the most fragrant roses for my garden and they can be expensive..air layering means I can have as many as I can possibly fit into my space..really easy to do and have had 100% success rate so far. If cannabis wasn't so easy to clone..I'm thinking that would have possibly been the go to method for them too.

    Grow your garlic in pots, you don't want that stuff invading the garden!

    Just found out what air layering is. That sounds prettt slick. I would like to plant a rose bush this year and have zero experience. Any varieties to avoid or any you think are must have? I'm in zone 5

    It's not as bad as bamboo. Garlic just spreads rapidly.

    Yeah, it's really a great way to clone..keeping the branch connected to the plant throughout the whole process as the roots start growing, ready in about a month for you to chop and stick straight into the ground/pot with a fantastic and established root system..so rewarding

    Ok so here are a few that I would recommend to anyone who is after exceptional fragrance, mid to high disease resistance

    Mr Lincoln - Hybrid Tea - My favourite and in my opinion (and many others) the most beautiful and strongest fragrant red rose in the world. As a bonus..she (all roses are 'she's' to me despite the name lol) grows very vigorously and is fantastic for cut flowers when you want to bring them indoors or as a gift, a truly beautiful rose.

    Papa Meilland - Hybrid Tea - Another red rose, Repeat flowering, semi-glossy foliage with a beautifully strong fragrance. Only negative being is she can grow a little 'wild' and weak so not the best to look at if you are not shaping her yearly.

    Special Anniversary - Hybrid Tea - Vibrantly pink rose with exceptionally glossy leaves, very strong flowering and has an exceptional fragrance which can travel throughout your garden, slightly spicy with a hint of vanilla!..beautiful.

    Chandos Beauty - Hybrid Tea - Peachy apricot blooms with a fragrance that will literally knock your socks off..she's a current contender as my favourite rose right now, nipping at the heels of Mr Lincoln..very healthy growth, semi-glossy leaves and if that wasn't enough, when in bloom and she opens fully..she will last for days without discolouring, truly outstanding.

    There are many more, but these recommendations will have you popping out into your garden every chance you can get for a cheeky whiff
