The ‘elders’ are hardy souls & done better than some of the middle age lavenders with new leaves:
The new kids and babies planted last summer are also doing well :
Lots of healthy plants and bees. I found out today that on the adjacent allotments alongside quite a lot of English plots there are Caribbean root vegetables, further along Chinese vegetables and who knows which others are represented. No plants seem upset by the presence of others and all doing well each year.
