So now it’s getting scary…
It was a low of 8.3°C here last night, and 9.3°C the night before. This is our purple sprouting broccoli today. It’s early February! In my school days , this time of year meant snow, ice, snowballs down your shirt, and freezing half to death at break time. We’ve had a grand total of 3 nights teetering just below freezing so far this winter, the lowest being -3°C. The daytimes have been more like October than winter. I fear for the younger ones.
Carmarthenshire (mild, wet, windy). Loam over shale, very slightly sloping, so free draining. Mildly acidic or neutral.
