Having a go at a cut flower patch...

Posted: Yesterday at 22:55

I am in going to try cut flowers this year, growing a few seeds direct and start some off in trays have a 1m bed with some things in from before which needs a good tidy, an area for sweet peas and cut flowers in front  

Those of you that have sown delphiniums how are they looking any pics, mine are small not got true leaves yet slow growing

Edd the morning glory said good for hanging baskets so trying it hope it works had the seeds for a bit and only used a few  

Hoping to get them big enough plants by end ish of April to go to the container talk at Hillier and get free compost to see if I can make the hanging baskets up for a lot cheaper than normal

Thanks Baza - I am going to do nasturtiums in another basket and marigolds
