This week, Gardeners Off World is in isolation, but that’s nothing new! Plus, plants grow better in puddles and how to avoid pyjama ennui.
In Gardeners off World this week, learn about a planned space greenhouse, Martian beans, a new space station and liftoff for space cannabis.
As ISS astronauts return to Earth, Gardeners Off World checks out the Veggie growth system, and how to sustain life in inhospitable environments.
This week Interplanetary gardeners have been harvesting beans grown in Martian soil, and preparing to blast radishes into space.
This year I sowed two different climbing beans – Blauhilde and Helda.
Broad beans have to be some of the best packaged seeds in the plant world, with a thick pod filled with fluffy wadding.
