Green manure mustard seeds

Green manures are very useful: quick growing, nutrient rich and cheap. I bought half a pint for about a quid. You sow directly onto the ground, wait 4-8 weeks and dig in. For dense soils wait until it flowers and the extra fibers improve the drainage too.

Mustard is apparently the easiest to erradicate when you’re ready to plant and you can do this most the year. I’m sowing mine now on last years beds.
