Good luck, rosemummy.....In my own SP baskets, I have to say that I have no experience of growing anything other than those specifically sold  for hanging baskets.

Started on the veg sowing!

Oh dear... the last thing I would wish to do, is to discourage anyone, but these early starts usually end in failure.

If say tomatoes are to be grown in a cold greenhouse (as most are) sowing the seed in mid-March is plenty early enough for most parts of the country.

Thanks, Rb...although I preferred the first one inasmuch as I wanted to show off the lovely feathers.

Either ways, it's a triumph in itself if the little bugg'rs don't fly off as soon as you pick the camera up.

John - just to say that as with most things in the garden, we are at the mercy of the weather. Given favourable conditions they may be flowering at the end of June.

Sorry for the delay  I thought those burfday flower shots were great, KEF...especially when enlarged.

hi david, i only have a smaller basket, i can keep in cool g'house, is it then worth me jist trying to sow theses dwarf/trailing direct when i sow normal ones in pots? osr sow all in pots and remember to label!!!

 

Well, not something I've tried, rosemummy, but see no reason why it wouldn't work. Perhaps be able to hang them outside, once they start to germinate.

Remember to sow those sold specifically for hanging baskets though,,,,..there are lots of different types (patio sps) and so on, out there.

Nice to see you around these threads, btw.
