What class of a cabbage is a telekia speciosa?
Etes-vous Belge de Bruxelles? Or perhaps a burgher from Bruges? If, like me, you tend to wonder what class of a cabbage is that mon chou, this Belgian botanical website will make you smile. It shows the prettiness of telekia speciosa – a spiky flower you could consider instead of a sunflower or cactus dahlia – and where it’s been sprouting lately.
Tilth is a darlin’ word that you’ll rarely get to use. When you’ve dug over your soil about three times, removed the bigger stones, the old unwanted roots, forked through some fertilizer, and battered the clay clumps into a friable tilth by also possibly adding some sand, your new bed is ready for planting. Himself, being a smart mouth, would suggest doing all this digging in winter when the frost will break up the clay clumps for you and maybe kill the newly overturned unwanted tap roots and dormant seeds too. The friable tilth is the crumbly texture of soil and sand that’s aerated and moist.
There’s an earlier post on the tulips we have from double earlies to parrot (frilly) versions here.
