Coys - I would say leave the bark mulch off until seeds have grown in to plants that are big enough to be above the rest of the bark mulch then cover around lightly if not the seeds might not grow as no light getting in

Glad you got your seeds cotty1000 and coys

Evening all. 

Many thanks to Fidgetbones for offer of donation to the station.  Have just visited - late night visit - to check everything ok.  Garden looking good after rain today, deciding where to put the paint which will have to wait for dry weather to be done. 

Can you take cuttings of euphorbia? have that up station want more.
