You don't need to start tomatoes so early. As you have a greenhouse I think it would be more practical to look into ways of heating it. Does it have an electrical supply? If not, there are paraffin heaters. If you get your seeds germinated that is only the start, where will you put all the baby plants? You need a frost free greenhouse. When the weather warms up seeds sown later will grow better and faster.

A second lovely day, but I was too busy with other things to be out gardening.

Clematis

But Montana clematis is category 1, which doesn't need pruning. It flowers on old wood. If it has got far too big and outgrown it's place you can cut back and trim after flowering.

I expect it's OK then, feathers can flatten. Maybe it needs several viewings before making an offer!

The snowdrop is "Grumpy" that I won in a gardening club quiz and the hellebore is one of the babies that self sowed.

Back from dentist son with new, free crown


I think it maybe a little small, Hosta, on seeing the bluetit at the entrance. But isn't it lovely to have an interested tenant!

Wonky, I'm sorry about your job too, I hadn't realised. Hope you find an even better one soon. Hugs.
