I am determined to keep on top of the seed sowing. This year I have decided to sow my seeds little earlier than I have done in the past. I have had a lot of jobs indoors to do in the last year or two, so this year I can really concentrate on the garden and I can't wait. I have just ordered some more seeds today, and I get such a buzz that I can soon get out into the garden again and get my hands into the soil.

To finally get my pond, decking and garden arbour seat put together in the back garden. Take out hedge in front garden and put picket fencing up. When I get the time, roll on spring!!

To sow seeds a little later although that'll be really hard if you guys start sowing in February I've already started looking at the distructions on seed packets as to how soon they can be sown

I'm also trying for an allotment this year, sent out a few e-mails yesterday, fingers crossed, would be happy even with half an allotment.

We were late sowing seeds last year as we were having work done on the house, but I'd like to sow tomatoes, various beans, chillies, peppers, squash, courgettes etc.  Also, I would like a raised bed for vegetables - just a matter of deciding where to put it in the garden.

I'm with you Zoomer I'm always sowing my seeds at the soonest possible time on the packet regardless of common sense e.g. low light levels, bad weather etc.  I just have to tell myself I will have stockier better plants if I hold off.  My resolution is not to go at things like a bull in a china shop, to show a bit more patience and take time to enjoy the garden more.

Looks like we're all going to have a productive time ahead.

What other resolutions do people have in store for 2014?

I am keen to grow plants that I haven't tried before, e.g. Agapanthus, Nerines and those that will attract more bees and butterflies to our garden.

Not to sow to many seeds, as I run out of room far to early, and label my plants and seeds !

I'm also going to visit more gardens, Harlow Carr is the first on the list.

I am focusing on landscaping this year. So fixing and adding to my current landscaping.

I like t o grow as many species as I can for the wildlife and me. I've lost a few over the last few years due to neglect and weather. I must do a stock check this year and replace anything important

I will not buy any plants that I don't already have a space for. Well that's one resolution that won't last very long.

07/01/2014 at 10:51

not to cut myself with my secuters again this year... got a nice inch .and deep cut my right palm  this morning

I'm thinking of growing rice this year with all this rain or watercress.

I like that one oldchippy! I think they'll be a lot of us joining you too. Yes, like it or not, 2014 has certainly started as The Year of the Water Garden!

My resolution is to make sure I spend a few minutes each day listening to the birds in the garden and to try and grow my sweet pea seeds well to grow big and have loads of flower

07/01/2014 at 19:18

GardenG, I agree; I am going to take Sweet Peas far more seriously this year; they are so glorious and in the past I've been a bit haphazard with them.
