I am a passionate gardener who has lived in a flat for 16 years. It was like a prison and I ended up growing runner beanrs up the curtains (yes really).
I am about to get a house and a garden - south facing in herts.
I used to growq everything from mushrooms to bananas, most fruit and veg and a lot of plants.
Now I find myself out of touch I looked through the seed catalogues and according to them everything of theirs is exceptionally good for everything with two cherries on top and two sprinkles for luck.
How do I get rto know what are the best varieties nowadays? I know there are some that cant be beaten - victoria plum comes to mind.
I want to grow fruit and veg and flowers - reliable croppers
My trusty Readers Digest Encyclopedia is well out of date.
Where could I find this objective non marketing hype info please?
