Flower Growing is a year round enterprise………
There is never a downtime where we do nothing at all, just sometimes are less frantic than others!
Its July and I’m turning my attention to my Biennial crops.
Normally I would have made a start on these in June but with the baking heat I was worried my seedlings would get frazzled.
Biennials flower not this year, but next.
They are best planted outside in the autumn
so they can get well established over the winter.
Why Biennials? Well they flower much earlier than Annuals and most don’t mind a bit of part shade and even the poorest of soils and the flowers are so interesting giving a real unique look to your flower displays.
I’ve just snapped up the Biennial Seed Collection from Higgledy Garden, you get a lovely had written note from Benjamin and I even got a gift of Daucus carota which you will know from my previous post is a new favourite and the seeds so very welcome, thanks Benjamin!
So what am I going to sow?

*Hesperis (Sweet rocket) White
*Wallflower ‘Fire King’
*Sweet William ‘Auricula Eyed’
*Sweet William ‘Nigricans’
Sweet William ‘Alba’
and of course *Daucus Carota
