No! Matron does not do flowers! you can't eat flowers...apart from this wonderful purple sprouting broccoli PSB 'Rudolph' which is in danger of being eaten any day now!
And my first seeds to come up this year are these broad bean 'Aquadulce Claudia'. Given a little bottom heat to start them off, I will keep them in a greenhouse for a couple of weeks then harden them off before planting outside. I find this reduces the chances of them being 'nibbled'. I will plant a second crop in about a month, I find that if the blackfly are busy feeding off the first crop... they sometimes ignore the second crop elsewhere!I will also plant some nasturtiums nearby to confuse them!
