Stokes Seeds and Dominion Seed House catalogues have arrived. And so starts the planning for next year's garden. What new annuals should we introduce? What worked well last year that we want to continue? Do we need a bit more punch here or there?
And, by the way, we'll ignore the less-than-helpful notation on the back of the Dominion catalogue that tells us "your hardiness zone is 1". Who knows where they pulled that from.
Oh well, there's still plenty of time to ponder all these things before the seed order goes in. In the meantime the holiday season is here and we turn our minds to time with family, to meals together, and perhaps a toast to another successful gardening season.
