Something New

Tuesday was a pleasant day with some sunny periods and for once the wind had dropped.

We always like to try something new and this year we are trying Sweet Potatoes “Beauregard”. These are normally grown from slips but we thought we would give Dobies new “super plug plants” a try even though these are more expensive than the traditional slips.
The plug plants arrived today and looked to be really healthy plants. These have been potted on into 4” pots to grow on in the greenhouse. It might well be that these will be potted up into large pots to spend the whole summer in the greenhouse as they enjoy warm conditions
