seeds in compost

Posted: 03/07/2014 at 08:44

I must admit i don't turn my compost enough.

At the moment i am using a plastic bin that i was given and it's difficult to turn in there. Yes i think i should have let the seeds germinate first before sowing the lettuce i did sow in straight lines but  there were so many seedlings i couldn't tell which were the lettuce.

I have cleared them all now and will sow again, thanks for all your advice

Today i had a humming bird moth in my garden WOW they are amazing !

i have not seen them before, just been reading that they have a good memory and come back to your garden at the same time each day. i am looking forward to seeing it again tomorrow maybe.

I do have lots of forget-me -nots but i did't think these were them,

maybe i will let them get a little bigger before i decide to keep them,

Thanks for your reply.

Pesky birds

I had the same problem last year, kept finding pieces of slate on the patio every morning from a large tub with a maple in,  thought it was the dog as some of them were quite big but it was blackbirds, they stopped comming after a few weeks.

I sowed some lettuce and salad leaves a few weeks ago in a large container i mixed in some of my own garden compost and loads of seeds from the compost have grown.

this mystery white substance on them.  could it possibly be fairy dust ?

I planted several of these last year and now they are flowering i can't  remember what they are, not sure if i grew them from seed or if they were plugs.

They are between 5 - 6 ft tall  the flowers are pink and fade to white, and they have an amazing perfume. Can anyone advise what they are please.
