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...
