Watching seedlings grow

Really is great seeing others seedlings and what they look like 

Tesni  I have Larkspur to sow - did you need to put them into somewhere cold first or do they just grow fine in indoor temps?

GemmaJF your Lobelia look fab when did you sow yours?   I want to buy some seeds now,  When I sowed them a few years ago I pricked them all out individually did not know they are best in a group of seedlings

Lyn  your  7' miscanthus look brill - with grass do you keep the grass altogether or plant on as individuals?  not sure what to do with mine,  like the little tiny seedling popping up in your lobelia   

New allotment OMG...

Thought it would be nice to have a thread where we could all up load pics of our seedlings, sure it great seeing other forum members seedlings

It is really exciting seeing seedlings pop up and every time I sow seeds it is always brilliant seeing that they have germinated  

So here is the pics of mine

Really like the leaves of the Morning glory star of yelta

Delphinium blue bird


Celery has now been pricked out into bigger pots

So add your pics of seedlings for all to see

Cucumber planting advice

Posted: 13/03/2015 at 13:51

cucumbers are really nice remember you can cut in to pieces with no skin or middle stuff  and cook in butter in a frying pan yummy and make cucumber soup - I want to grow loads this year   like them in my sandwiches

I grow them at back of veg bed with sweetcorn in front
