My flower bed at the allotment has lots of this mysterious plant growing in it – the fluffy plant in the middle of the picture below.
It self-seeded itself and I’m not sure what it is – has anyone got any idea? It looks like fennel but there is so much of it in the bed that I can’t think that it is…last year I had cornflower in the bed, could that be it? It doesn’t look familiar.
Farnham Local Food are holding a plant sale and open day on Saturday 18th May. All of the plants on offer are grown by members of the group and there should be a good selection. You are welcome to come along and see what there is on offer. While you are there, enjoy some homemade cakes and chat to other gardening enthusiasts. The group will also be firing up the cob oven they made during their recent workshop, so there may be fresh pizza to eat. There will even be some live music to enjoy and fun activities for the children. Admission is free.
The event will run from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the group’s Runfold site. For more details, visit the website www.farnhamfood.com, or phone 0843 557 1569 and leave a message. Live music on the day will be from folk musician Sandy Flett, and members of the Surrey Hills Ukelele Band.
