Hello all

So much done yesterday in garden just wrote a whole post computer disappeared it

Glad I spent a lot of hours in the garden yesterday as wet out now, I planted out the 2 plants I got Wednesday from In-Excess Ringwood a primula and wild flower sneezewort, then dug up some self seeded white Campion re planted them

Weeded the front garden my made path swept it and added topsoil, combed and thinned out the ponytail grass that made a lot for the compost bin, spent most time bent down so lower back sore put a heat patch on later yesterday and fine today

I had a lot of self seeded plantlet from the path which I have put into the nursery bed    

later on I sowed seeds a grass cyperus papyrus and flower laurentia blue stars in little trays, more seed sowing today

While I was out in the front garden I got a parcel my bright coloured orange and blue trays and propagator lids and OMG they are amazing

I want the weather to be dryer as I have FREE horse manure to get later today - think I will be doing more digging for bagging of the stuff

Lunaria Seeds definitely look like hollyhock seeds to me, but the plants not

sure you have not mixed up what went in the pots? did you so any other seeds at the same time?

I subscribe to the mag - what there were more seeds on non subscriber ones, I thought you meant that sometimes there was one pack and sometime two,  hope they don't do that again not fair on subscribers

Lunaria what did the seeds look like?

Perki some of the GN mags last year did come with 2 packs of seeds so far just a pack a mag - which is still really nice to get normally they say if it is going to be more seeds in the mag for what is next week   

CharlieBot sometimes aquilegia do take ages to grow
