Thursday – Fruit, Vegetables and Companion Planting

Thursday 6th May #TweetersFlowerShow presents – a virtual Fruit and Vegetable show 

We are celebrating the magic of the productive garden from large allotments down to the small veg patch or container grown produce. Our chats will include companion planting, where flowers aid pollination or help protect crops from pests and edible flowers.

Your Host

Hosting today’s event will be Audrey Rose (@MrsARose1) who many of you will also know as the founder and host of the popular #FlowersOnFriday twitter hashtag administers via the Twitter account (@FlowersOnFriday).

We will again be joined by popular Twitter gardeners who will offer tips and advice:

Allotmenteer and gardener Nikki (@NikkiGardener2) will be writing a blog about creating a herb wall. She will also be posting to the #TweetersFlowerShow throughout the day.

Twitter allotment celebrity Olga aka @Lovely_Plot will also be getting involved. Posting fruit and veg based tips and giving advice on companion planting.
