A few years ago it was difficult to grow much more than a potato in the Calder Valley. Ancient locals would laugh in your face if you flaunted a seed packet in the pub. But hey global warming! The temperatures and the possibilities are changing - we've even got a couple of market gardens again. Plenty of us get all enthusiastic about growing our own, but the problem is, you only get a small window of opportunity. Before you know it it's too late, you're full of self loathing and resign yourself to the shops for another year.
But this year we're making it easy for you whether you've got an allotment or a window box. Sally Baker of Kingfisher Flowers will be demonstrating the how-tos of sowing seeds and potting on at the Eggstravaganza. There will be sessions from 11-12.30 and again from 1.30-3.00 but to be sure of a place you can book here.
And Sally has created a new product - the Miniveg! A tray of veg seedlings and plants all ready to look after until they're big enough to eat, available for a very reasonable fiver, only at the Eggstravaganza!
