Me planted out variegated honesty today

What did you do in your garden today?

Posted: 23/05/2013 at 19:49

Did a small bit of Chelsea chop on the red campion as I thought I would see if it would work on that and - so I could have some indoors to enjoy as well

Evening All  

Fairygirl me going to eat cake soon nice cream tea

GG like your garden great pics

Yesterday I brought a garden shredder - second hand and got some free pea plant as well which was nice also checking plants at the station looking OK

Here's a pic have not used it yet

Today I was out sowing dwarf beans direct then suddenly it hale stones on me - not nice and cold

Later sorted out planting out a few plants variegated honesty from seeds that nutcutlet sent me and a few I brought from the fair up the road last weekend

started raining again brought online plug plants from GW mag - lavender and ended up buying a dwarf honeysuckle as Chelsea showed someone yesterday wanting to know how to shape plants and said something about wire - so thought I might have a go with that if I can

Hello nut, yes the honesty seeds did turn out to be varigated, thank you.  Would welcome more, plus the yellow rattle.  Don't worry about the stipa, there are lots of things that I haven't done too.

Could you tell me how to sow the rosa mogenii (?) seeds you sent me before as I haven't got round to sowing them yet, do they need to be soaked or anything?  Is it just a case of sowing them straight into compost?
