Talkback: Early seed sowing

Talkback: Early seed sowing

I have had some success with seeds but a lot end up in the bin. I only have window ledges to grow them on this time of the year. Have been successful sometimes with bizzie Lizzies and cosmos. Mind you I grew some hydrangeas from seed last year.
I think some of my failures may be due to sewing too early and maybe not enough light.
Have collected some loo rolls so will have a go at sewing some sweet peas in them. My first batch have flopped......very tall with not a leaf in sight. They were about 6" tall.....ha ha....definitely a problem.....I think the root of success is not to give up and to keep
trying.......but there again it's also recognising what you can achieve and what you can't.

I can take good nature photographs but can never get a decent one of a bird.

That's a lot of plants Lizzie, can't image the size of your garden, must be massive. It's good that you can sell off your surplus for charity, it's a really nice thing to do.

What's the weather like in your area?

Hi everyone, haven't moved out of my flat today, feels too cold. Bin busy all week so will allow myself the luxury of a day in. Won't be any food shortage here , I 'm cooking up a big casserole (bort a slow cooker that is too big for me!), when I've finished shud have about 6 meals to freeze.
Catching up on all the forums to see what's happening, it's nice to catch up. Have just been pottering this morning and feeding my orchids.
