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.

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.
