Stagbeetle great pic, nice lot of flowers you have been sowing, good green house remember to hold your GH down with bricks on bottom shelf or compost as can be prone to blowing over  

Not started my Verbena B yet -  it does take a while to germinate   

Want to put up my GH this week as seed trays are building up indoors and want to sow more but can't till I get more space

I am trying freesias mix this year says not to plant till April so they are in a cool room got them from Sarah Raven like well drained soil and sunny area or part sun if not

Matty2 I have spotted that grass Sarah Raven uses it in cut flowers looks good worth a go
