New year, new thread! Happy gardening everyone!
I haven’t been doing much gardening, except I’ve ordered some new plants like a hazel nut tree and several raspberries bushes in December, add soil in certain pots. Also repot certain plants that are growing too big. Also a lot of cleaning. I need to find time soon to repot and treat a peach tree that has serious leaf curl problem, it may be a bit too late now, I should have done it in late autumn.
A question on fava beans, been growing them annually for a few years already. Sometimes I sow them interior but most of the time in exterior bed directly, I’m wondering why in some beds, they always germinate, but when I sowed the seeds in the tomato bed (the same seeds as other part of the garden in the same year), no germination, are they eaten by the things in the soil? In the beginning, I thought, maybe the soil was too wet, I remember digging and found nothing in the soil, no trace of seeds or rotten seeds. If so, are there ways I can sow them in soil without being eaten? Or I need to sow indoors and transplant? Thanks in advance.
