Ask the Gardener: Sowing Heritage Seeds
In Abernodwydd, we grow several varieties of heritage seed which are no longer available commercially. Drop into the garden to find out what you can sow now.
At St Fagans we try to grow vegetable varieties that are appropriate to the date of the houses. Two of the stars of our collection are ‘Carlin’, a variety of pea from the 17th century and ‘White Windsor’, a broad bean mentioned in seed catalogues from 1729.
