They all made it through Lesley, I have only 3, how hard can that be? I have felt guilty all day. They laid the eggs in the run, instead of the nest box out of protest. Don't blame them.

I'm very short sighted, I blame all of it on that, although glasses and e cig don't resemble any alarm clock that I know off

Hi nut, I might have a closer look at them rather than thinking you need to be pulled up and quickly before you outseed the whole garden!

Autumn Sown Hardy Annuals

Posted: Yesterday at 20:31

Hi Amy,I had a bit of go at sowing hardy annuals last year.Calendula did really well for me and these Autumn sowing were definately ahead of the game in terms of flowering than those sown in Spring.

Sweet peas are great idea. I don't really do any direct sowing as I'm a really bad weeder and  can't compete with the slugs/snails. If you or someone you know can use a drill etc, you can make very effective vertical coldframes.

What a great show of candytuffs Victoria, I would never have thought of sowing them now. I've had a pretty poor show this year

Did the chicken walk last night to lock them up............found out this morning, I'd locked them out!

Verdict....your new plants this year

New plants for me, my beetroot, runners and the cucumbers! Love them

No real new flowers, this year, very pleased that most of my old friends from my old garden made it through being dug up and chucked in pots/bags.

Caral, there's some of the pink type of Lychnis coronaria where I live, lovely plants. I've already collected the seed from them and they have germinated really well, both inside the greenhouse and outside.

I've not ever seen any, the caterpillar or the moth. He looks so strange..........I like him! I do have plenty of very tall rosebay willow herb though, I take it they feed on them

Do people think it's best to collect them when the furry bits are yellow/brown? I've grown this year for the first time and the plants haven't done so well. When I've had a sneaky peek the individual corns look very small but the tassles are now brown,

I'm not convinced that the plants are going to do anything more.
