I have gardened in Liverpool for years by trial and error. This year's new focus is to get the most veg out of four small raised beds.

Love this amaranthus, first time growing it, does it seed itself around or do you need to grow from seed every year? #advice

Looks amazing! The tails are gorgeous aren’t they 😍 They self seed so shouldn’t need to sow any next year 😊

@sadieberg the upright ones are just as eye catching 🤩 especially the bronze ones. I’m growing a coral coloured one like this, they become a bit addictive 🤣

Not a bad thing to be addicted to, I will keep a look out for the coral coloured ones, they sound amazing. Are they flowering now? If so you'll have to post a pic 😍 @kez001uk

@sadieberg very true! Healthy addiction 😛I’ll tag you in a photo of the coral ones, and if you do fancy growing them I’m happy to send seed ☺️

I would love some seed Kerry, thankyou. Do you collect your seed in the autumn and sow in spring? @kez001uk

@sadieberg if you’d like to email me your address I’ll post some out to you 😁 kez001uk@gmail.com - I do and I sow it slightly later as they grow so fast when the weather warms up 😊
