As the garden starts to take shape, so do the beds that now need filling. This patch has been planted with non climbing sweet peas.
Somewhat on a whim, we decided to buy a couple of blackcurrant bushes to go in the ‘soft fruit’ area in front of the apple trees.
We decided on two varieties, Big Ben, a relatively new variety with very large berries, and Ben Lomond, a classic variety with good frost resistance and good yields. Hopefully we will get at least a few currants this year.
