Keep off the Crass

When it comes to sowing vegetables, straight rows abound in the Weeds HQ garden but of late we’ve got into a bit of anarcho-gardening. That don’t mean we slip into our favourite biker’s leather jacket and do the punk kicking dance on the lawn in the evening but rather we buy a few packs of seeds and scatter them randomly and see how they get on.

One of our favourite beds has a couple of tomato plants, a rhubarb crown or two, rocket and borage alongside all sorts including our favourite night scented stock. Pop down your local seed emporium and buy a dolly mixture type assortment of seeds packs and give it a go. No to (too much) uniformity in flower beds, unless you want it! #gardeningsnotdead

A photo of the great front garden up the road from us clandestinely taken on the way home from work. It’s not your normal boring front garden as it’s laden with all sorts of fruit and veg if you look hard enough. There’s even some Bob Flowerdew endorsed upside-down wire refrigerator trays to stop the birds and some beer traps for the slugs. Big up non-conformist front gardening!
