Climbers for my shed

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 21:37

Trouble with ivy also is it tends to trap moisture and rot your shed faster.

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 21:32

Sweet peas, Begonia so far. Will be sowing lobelia the end of this month. Mainly sow in march however. I'm not sure if its too early I often find things this time of year struggle with lack of light and become leggy. I'm growing the begonia seeds under lights at the minute.

Rose questions now I've sorted the begonias :)

The heat in the shops of the ones in aldi wilkinsons tend to force them into growth a bit so have a good look at which ones you choose.

Sowing flowers from seed

No the sweet peas will be hardy enough to go outside now mine are in a unheated mini greenhouse its just they wont germinate without a little heat if they put straight outside this time of year. As soon as they germinate I put them outside as they get leggy otherwise indoors.
