When and how to feed

Posted: 27/04/2013 at 21:58

I repotted them about 7 weeks ago and since have kickeI on. They are not about 2-3 inches tall and bushing a bit. Just bit unsure if I harden and plant out or should I keep in pots and put out later in the season. First time I have ever had my own cuttings make plants. Yay!! Scabiosa, coreopsis, geyser and platycodon.

Cyclamen

Oh think I made a boob then!!! I was given 4 mini cyclamen from a farm shop and the started to fade after trying v hard over winter. Tonight I noticed I could only see a few leaves left and some activity at one heart. So I dug them out of my clay bed and potted up in compost and pots and watered??

What shall I do?? When do they need what doing??

I'm running out of space. I will soon have seedlings to pot up. My marigolds are getting their first set if true leaves. Now do I buy more pots or make paper ones?

I must not must not must not must not must not buy anything else!!!
