Hedge Mustard

Right now – this year and every year – it’s possible to read my latest novel The Fountain in the Forest in synch with the French Republican Calendar.

Today’s date* Quartidi 14 Ventôse CCXXVIII and Chapter 2 of the novel are dedicated to Hedge Mustard.

You can buy Hedge Mustard seeds from Nicky’s Nursery in time to sow in early May.

P.S. Watch out for more The Fountain in the Forest / French Republican Calendar posts over the next 28 days.

*According to Charles-Gilbert Romme’s rule for calculating leap years.


Buy The Fountain in the Forest direct from publisher Faber and Faber
