Scotkat that is good nice to see when all your hard work is showing, bit far away from here as well.

Seeds are up

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

Sam I have sown some Teasel seeds which I collected from a plant, seeds indoors on window sill.

I am trying a wild flower area for bees and butterflies so brought some wildflower seeds.  Not sown much other than those seed bit cold and compost solid.

Jean not sown those seeds before.

Has anyone else been buying cheap seeds at min?

Advice on garden improvements

Posted: 22/02/2013 at 13:39

May be you should make some raised beds in pattern shapes have a look on google some good ideas on there, make sure you add drainage in the bottom stones or something. You could buy some cheap seeds wild flower - good ones in 99p shop -sprinkle on and watch them grow or some plants, fox-gloves are nice and self seed them self well.  Maybe plan out on paper first you could use some thing like a garden hose to mark out shapes in the garden

Try the seed swap forum you could get some cuttings or seeds and some don't mind given them away to help others.
