Well, I got my sweet peas in the other day, hardy annual plugs are outside, surplus plants have gone to mums, leaving me with more growing on space.

..So, i'm browsing plantworld seeds for perennials seeds to grow for next year.

Some campanulas, some foxgloves, some hardy geraniums, all sorts of odd hardy climbers mmm might be at this some time.

Good morning everyone.Not very good weather here. I'd better go and open the back gates for the lorry. What's the betting that the delivery will be nearer to 6pm than 8-30am?

Planting Sunflowers Out Now?

Orchid lady, where do you have them, they don't want heat. protection against rodents would be more necessary. Once they are 6 inch tall, get them outside in a sheltered place.

We saw three swallows in North Notts today. I thought they were early. maybe they came up on that saharan wind we had a couple of weeks ago.

Planting Sunflowers Out Now?

Sunflowers are hardy, but if it has been grown soft and with heat, it will need hardening off. Put outside during the day, and leave up against a house wall at night for a few days and then plant out.
