Cheap seeds

Posted: 11/02/2013 at 17:30

I've used seeds from Lidl for the last few years and I have had great success with them. My cucmbers were lovely. I can not see the point paying so much for seeds from the well known brands when the Lidl seeds do just as well and produce such lovely plants.

A new stock of Lidl seeds will be in this week I think. I'll be there having a look and no doubt buying some more

Lidl always have good bargain seeds and they are very good.

Talkback: Waiting for the snow to thaw

The snow has long gone here in Bournemouth. It is now blowing a gale and pouring with rain. Had a look round the garden yesterday and the bulbs are pushing their heads up and a few things have new shoots showing including my Fuchsias. I love the spring, the blue tits are even checking out the nesting box, so spring is definitely coming.

I did the RSBP bird watch yesterday, and there are far fewer birds than last year. This is also being said on the RSBP forum. I think the birds know its the big count and stay out off the way, the littly devils.

I have had lots of birds in my garden, I put out some fruit and some porridge oats (not cooked obviously) the blackbirds love it,  I've got a peanut feeder and a fat ball feeder.and meal worms.in a dish. Blackbird is the bossy one, chasing the starlings and anyone else that might try and take his meal worms. I have been out there breaking the ice on the bird bath several times a day. Luckily the snow has now gone from Bournemouth. I will be doing the Big Garden Bird Watch this weekend, it is something I do every year.

I've just purchase Begonia Semperfloren seeds from ebay and they are pelleted seed/pills which make it so much easier to sow. I have bought seeds from here before and they grow really well.

I have some Alstoemerias in pots and they only stopped flowering a few weeks ago, they flower their socks off all through the summer. We are still making our way through the Christmas cake, I put Brandy into mine so it should last a while.

Beautifull Lillies happymarion, I can almost smell them (the cake looks nice too). It has been a dreadful day here in Bournemouth, it hasn't stopped raining. I managed to sow some Alstoemeria seeds yesterday. This is a first for me, never grown them before. Others have said how difficult they are to grow, but I'm always up for a challenge. They are in my heated propagator so fingers crossed and watch this space.
