Finding beauty in fading plants | Allan Jenkins

On Plot 29 plants are allowed a longer life – and there is much to appreciate as they succumb to winter

Planning for winter planting is an awkward thing for me. I am mostly not good at it, mostly for good reasons. It is to do with space, primarily. Plot 29, or my part of it at least, is about 20-odd square metres. Rotation is tough. And I tend to let plants live a longer life. To leave, say, a few kales and Japanese mustards to bloom. It is a thing I learned from Jane Scotter at Fern Verrow farm: a respect for things you grow.

There are chicories we sowed last winter that have been blooming throughout the year and now we have a few newer plants that are fast spiralling upwards, soon to be throwing perfect blue-flowered spikes.
