Carrot experiment, pumpkin and hedgehogs video.

In this week’s video I have looked at the carrot experiment, harvested another pumpkin and got some footage of some hedgehogs I found in my garden.

Carrot experiment.

A few weeks ago I started an experiment by sowing some carrot seeds into some root trainers. Its time to move the experiment on and plant these out. Overall germination was poor and I do not have a huge amount of carrots. Using the root trainers however seems like a good idea and makes planting pretty easy.

Pumpkin and hedgehogs.

I have also harvested another pumpkin of which I have been monitoring and guessed it was larger than the pumpkin harvested in a previous video. Was I right? Well in this video we shall find out.

I was also lucky enough to capture on film 3 young hedgehogs in my garden. This awesome creatures are a gardeners friend and well worth encouraging into the garden if you can.

Check out the video below.

    Is there a big difference as to what will grow outdoors over winter between where you are and Manchester?

    Good question. I’m close to the coast so get pretty mild weather. Where you are you might colder and a bit harsher so you might lose some more tender crops. However if you choose hardier crops and keep clouches and fleece to hand you should easily grow plenty.
