- Leland, here is a list that I've made by attempting to narrow down the
website list. (Sorry it's a bit disorganised). As I have no experience of
planting - this will be my first experiment - I thouht you might be able to
advise me on what to choose. Maybe you know what on my list is totally
unsuitable for England, or what is missing that is important. I think
growing grains could be good too, but I don't know which would grow here.
And when there are more than 5, maybe I can pay myself for the others, or I
could keep a note of them and order them later.
