This was perhaps the second bunch of Lathyrus I have picked this summer, a welcome sight indeed.
I chose a collection six packets of seeds from Sarah Raven this year.
I sowed them all and had over 50 plants but space in this garden seems to be getting smaller everywhere so I didn’t get to plant them all. The ones I did plant are out in the allotment area. Once again, as I have for the last three years I am growing them on a vertical support system not up teepee’s as I did years before. I have had so much more success with this method.
I am always learning and striving to get better and these wonderful plants are reason enough to grow flowers and I’ll keep trying every year. Here’s to a few more bunches this season.
