|A solitary beetroot from my first seed tape planting!|
I made succession plantings of sections of tape from late April onwards. So far, only two beetroot plants have appeared and the spring onions are taking a very long time to germinate, despite some lovely warm sunny days here in Robin Hood land. I suspect that, as with the beetroot, most of the spring onion seeds will not germinate. I have packets of conventional seeds in hand and am about to wander into the garden and sow these alongside the remaining unplanted tapes so that I can make comparisons in a few weeks time.
