Note to self: items from Jane Perrone’s The allotment keepers handbook

Just going to donate the book to charity, but wanted to keep a note of a few things that haven’t cropped up elsewhere

  • Michael Pollan’s Second nature: a gardener’s education
  • National lists of varieties that must be distinct, uniform and stable are defined in the Plant varieties and seeds act 1964
  • guttering for pea seeds
  • harden off then plant out. give the seedlings a good soak an hour before transplanting — it’s the most stressful time of their lives
  • Another book: Antonio Carluccio’s Vegetables
