Journal 2002

This page records events in the 2002 growing season. The first part of the page gives details of the cultivars being grown this year and the dates on which certain activities and events take place. The second part of the page is a journal of events and activities during 2002, I'll try to keep this updated regularly.

This year I've decided to continue with mainly medium cultivars, Clapham Delight is the only large being grown this year.

I'm not sure whether this page will be of  interest to readers or not, some feedback will be helpful. Thanks.
