The Kings Seeds catalogue is here. You can browse and order on line but there’s nothing to beat planning the next season’s garden from the comfort of your armchair. This year’s catalogue includes some inspiring photography from Kings Seeds’ customers, including this photo of sweet peas on the cover by Bridgit Anderson. If you’ve looked after your seed purchases from the last few years, many of them will still be viable in the spring.
Too impatient to wait until spring? Get started straight away by sprouting some seeds or growing some microgreens indoors which make a tasty addition to your salads if they’re looking a bit sad and wintry. Something to try with your kids over the school holidays perhaps.
You might be in the mood to make some bread to go with your home made soup at this time of year. I enjoyed some pumpernickel from my bread maker this week – cocoa powder was a vital ingredient, even though you couldn’t taste the chocolate.
