Cause for celebration

Green plant food

As you finish your early harvests of broad beans and new potatoes, fill the gaps by broadcast-sowing summer green manures such as phacelia or buckwheat, available in large packets of seed from our garden centre. The lush green top growth is full of nitrogen: shear this off a few weeks before you want the bed again and add it to the compost, then fork the roots into the ground to rot down and feed your next crop.

Plant of the Week: Bleeding Heart

Plant of the Week: Bleeding Heart

The romantic common name of this early summer beauty hasn’t changed, although its Latin name has: now called Lamprocapnos spectabilis, you may be more familiar with its previous name, Dicentra spectabilis.

The plant is just as lovely by any name, though, its delicate, arching stems appearing as if from nowhere in late May, dripping with exquisite pink (sometimes white) heart-shaped flowers, each dangling from gossamer-thin stalks. The dainty, ferny foliage is just as delightful, and dies down naturally after flowering: plant other pretty woodlanders like hostas or ferns alongside to fill the space. Dicentra is easy to grow in sun or part shade, and prefers well-drained but moist soil.
