I also planted Peas, Cauliflower, Squash & Beetroot all straight into the raised veg patch and popped in lots of Nasturtium seeds around the edges to make it look pretty! 😀👍🏼😀

Oh peas you've just reminded me 😁 that sounds nice... Nasturtiums are great around brasicas for caterpillars @sieveheadsarah

That's good to know, I'm sure I read something about French Marigolds being good to plant with veg, can't remember why though 🤔😂🤔

Think they discourage bad pests @sieveheadsarah and me cos they stink lol but I'm growing them 😁

comment
sieveheadsarah

Ha ha, I agree with you about them stinking, last year I bought some for the first time ever and realised they're great for filling in the gaps and bulking out pots, this year I'm growing them from seed, but not the plain orange or yellow ones, I'm trying Kilimanjaro & colossus and I think one that's called honeycomb. 😀
