Plants in season
We are combining April and May with visual and gastronomic promise
First is the visual treat: Perennial Wallflower (Erysimum) Bowles Mauve. A hardy small shrubby perennial that has already been flowering for a month. Evergreen, tough, with bluish green leaves and purple flower spikes that are irresistible to butterflies in summer. It will flower til August or longer if dead headed regularly.
And secondly its not so much plant of the month but plants - we have been growing veg seedlings and tomatoes for a couple of months now. From now onwards, through till the end of May we will be hardening off the plants and making them ready to do wonders in your veg plots.
