      Dug up a Fatsia and potted it up. Rearranged a few things so now have a nice space for a Hebe Autumn Glory I'm on the look out for.
      Put a cloche over some chard seedlings, hoping they survive a bizarre sowing time.
      Did some more general tidying up.
      Got my first seed cataloge of the year, Mr. F's, so browsed that over a cuppa.

            Wasn't planning to do much in the garden today, but thought I'd better do something with the autumn sown Aquadulce broad beans this afternoon.

            I sowed them outdoors as usual around early November, normally they would just about be poking through the surface by now. However, due to the ridiculously mild weather this year they're already several inches high. They wouldn't normally reach this size until around March or even early April.

            This is not necessarily a good thing. After this morning's frost, followed by a windy afternoon they were flopping about all over the place. The mild conditions, combined with low light levels after several weeks of dull weather and short days have produced rather leggy plants which aren't as sturdy as normal.

            So I decided the only thing to do was to earth up along both sides of the rows, hoping this will give them a bit more stability. Don't know if it will work, never had to do this before, but it's worth a try.
