Noticed Bjay

Jean you are Bianca and I claim my £5

11/03/2013 at 15:45

Jean,just because it says March to May  does not mean in cold temp' most seed companies base the sowing on the south of England or France an old saying "if the soil is too cold to put your bare Bum on it , it is to cold for seed" unless of coarse you have a frost G/H .

 Hi Bunny , many years ago I grew cornflowers and they were just fantastic colours ,the OH  decided that they would nice on the table while we ate our dinner ,we did not do that again


11/03/2013 at 16:14

I am not putting bum on ground for anyone -not even Bianca

11/03/2013 at 16:17

Bunny have you got plenty of space for all those seedlings? heat too?

So far all I've done/got are sweetpeas. Tomatoes & cosmos & broad beans this week. The rest get done later in month/April & even May for morning glory & Black eyed susan.

Cleaning going very s l o w l y again. J.

I see our Tower Hamlets friend is back again... :rollseyes:

I really want to start sowing seeds now but I only have window sills to offer any warm so holding back. The only one's I've sown so far are sweet peas when we had a warmish half hour a few weeks back.

Hope the crash wasn't anything too important jo.

i've been sowing too.   Chillies and tomatoes 10 days ago so they get a head start and benefit form the longest days in summer.  Last year I had no edible tomatoes but a decent crop of chillies so i'm hoping for better this year.   I also sowed sweet peas in loo roll tubes on the same day and germination is good so far.

I've also sown nemesias for my hanging baskets, cream aconitum and hollyhocks using my own seeds, white echinacea, Russell and dwarf Pink Fairy lupins, peas in a window box for the shoots, Christmas basil and purple sprouting broccoli. I know it's early for the PSB but ours always gets frozen to mush in winter so io' hoping t get ahead in time to have decent pickings in autumn.

Lots more seeds to sow but they'll have to wait for things to warme up so i can do them in the greenhouse as my window sills are full.

I did some PSB last week obelixx, and thought I was a bit early, so glad you said that.

11/03/2013 at 16:56

Sorry for my ignorance but what is PSB ?

11/03/2013 at 16:58

I had to think as well - purple sprouting broccoli at a guess

11/03/2013 at 16:59

Is it?-not according to the medical dictionary -

11/03/2013 at 17:00

Aha - thanks Bjay.

11/03/2013 at 17:00
