Its early July and the herbs are in full swing. From ‘Beyond the Garden Gate’ 20th March to this-

Started out very small but have developed and filled the window box completely. Even the Lavender in the terracotta pots has gone a bit mad this year. The amount and variety of bees is incredible with them flying in and out of the garden all day long, a joy to see.
The greenhouse seems quite bare at the moment. I’m not sure if I am behind with my planting this year.
Sowing more seeds today for the garden and the allotment.
Morning Glory, Californian Poppy, Busy Lizzie, Petunia, broccoli (Calabrese), Agastache, and a Foxglove that will flower in the first year ‘Foxy’.
I received these sweet pea seeds last year from some good friends of mine who live in Wessex, what variety they are I have no idea? but they have put on a great show this year.
They actually stopped flowering some time ago but I fed them with quite a strong solution of tomato feed and they have perked up again.
