how to grow perfect Primo Rollos
Net them against pesky pigeons!
These Primo Rollo cabbage plants, donated by Henley, were planted out just over a week ago. Hopefully I can look forward to lifting a beauty like last years in a month or two if the valiant little pigeon pecked cabbages recover.
‘know anyone who keeps chickens?
they’ll mug you for those caterpillars and might give you some eggs in return!’.
Not sure how everyone else in the office would feel if I rocked up to work with a bag full of caterpillars for my Manager!
I’m feeling a bit squeamish now recalling the fate of last years caterpillars so for no other reason here’s a cheering picture of my purple sensation alliums. I can’t imagine a more fitting name. Strange to see that all five purple sensation alliums survived the winter but none of the white or pink aflatunense alliums did.
