There is growth!


Having been in Perth all day yesterday for the Scottish Rock Garden Club show we were checking the garden this morning and… in the control bed both the broad beans and the peas are starting to show whilst the broad beans are showing in the moon bed. I realise now that the control bed gets more sunlight than the moon bed so, in a sense, it isn’t a fair trial but it is too late to change it for this year. At least it isn’t the moon bed that is being favoured :-)

Well done! Btw, what is a control bed and moon bed? Don't mind making myself sound stupid, but just curious....

Ah, think I've got it, you're the moon and bulbaholic is control, is that right, teehee!!

For a minute there, I thought there was some special technique to growing....... Durrrrrr!!!

Hi Crafnutter - take look at my first blog here which explains the basics of growing with the moons cycle.
