Planting out Sweet Peas

Not sure but you might find Ngcards that they do better for a chop down and grown more bushy

I had welsh poppies that were self sown in my last garden.  Just had a look at the blue meconopsis, lovely colour, really like blues and purples, I like a challenge.

There's some established buddleia already here and I have some geums that I moved last year Brilliant!

I grew some last year for the first time, yes they are big seedlings! Did you sow them in a greenhouse or inside? I've got a few sown in a cold frame, but no show yet.

Also had the thought of maybe sowing yellow some rattle seeds to try and cut down on the grass. I'm assuming that this would also be good for insects?

Thank you all so much, I am very excited about the Spring bank! I'm going to keep adding to it as I go along. Will be adding some honesty and sweet rocket, as I've seen honesty growing wild here. Please feel free to give me suggestions on stuff that's easy to grow from seed and you think would do well.

There is a very large laurel which is to the left  of the picture that is due to be cut back later this year so that should let in a lot more light.

I too love snowdrops nut, when you see them you know Spring is on the way!

Hi BusyB, I live in South Wales, interesting what you say about the stone. This is a very different garden for me. The last one I had was very flat and sheltered. Everything up here seems more difficult as it's uphill, stony ground, windy and  very wet. D. I'ts only really in the last month that there's been any sun on the garden

Thanks nut and lily, can't really believe I've been up here for nearly 6 months already! I would love to take the credit for the hard work but I do have a fabulous helper!

The landowner loves nature so has planted all the trees and shrubs here with wildlife in mind His wife has already given me a very generous clump of snowdrops in the green which have already gone into the spring bank for next year
