A successful experiment

At the end of February, I made some self-watering seed propagators from 1 litre lemonade bottles.

I have successfully grown:

  1. Climbing beans

2. Lollo rosso lettuce.  This is the second sowing. They are looking a bit sad because they were running out of water and it was too hot in the greenhouse. They soon perked up.

I’ve also got mint, chives, oriental salad, cress, radish, and spring onions. Some are more successful than others.

I’ll definitely be starting my beans off this way next year.
