I prefer to grow dahlias from seed can't store the tubers at all well and nice to see them grown from a small seed and get results.

I have not sown much of my seed swap seeds yet was waiting for bit better weather

Are the cuttings of hebes - I sent out to others doing OK still?

I think it was fine Geoff that you sowed the seeds then only a weekend early nothing wrong with that. good to get them started so they will grow into large plants and not get so eaten by the slugs

haven't started my veg yet - has any one else started there veg yet?

some more teasel seeds came up

Hollie hock - with the teasel seeds you could get a sheet of paper and tap the seed heads and seeds should come out, I sowed some on about 17th Feb and have started popping out they are indoors on a window sill - sowed lots in a tray and covered them with a bit of compost. they are biennial - so foliage first year seed heads second year

hope that helps 

my seed sowing will start more soonish

My seeds in the junk mail too ,they get mixed up in the junk - I think they should stick them to the front of the mag like they do if you don't subscribe to the mag.

hope you find your seeds daydaisy

It would be good if they offer lots of free seeds
