I've got 2 large clumps in pots both in leaf now, one is slightly ahead of the another. This is my first year in this garden so am trying to propagate as many plants as I can.

Having a go at a cut flower patch...

I found it really easy to grow CharlieBot, I just sowed the seeds and left it uncovered in my coldframes. Plenty have germinated in about 2 weeks.

I grew some a few years ago and they did well in a sunny spot, tough plants don't think the slugs or snails touched them. Be good to know how the chilling works, Larkspur are lovely plants

Yes, I moved some grape hycaniths out of pots and into the garden a couple weeks ago. They were just coming into flower at the time.

Woo I have trouble getting larkspur to germinate as well. Not ever heard of giving the seeds a chill so will try that as well.

So lovely to be able to enjoy the garden in the house. I've got some cosmos, cornflowers just popping up. Rudebekias make a lovely cut flower too.

I'm growing Statice again as well, easy to grow and quite chunky, lasts well in a vase and you can dry it as well.

The plant may go into a bit of shock if it was actively growing. I got mine off a lady who split the plant when it was dormant in Autumn I think. I'd give it a good drink, I'd say that it will survive just might not be at it's best this year

Seeds have started to germinate  got plenty of white cosmos, statice, sweet pea and some cornflowers. Sowed a lot later than I have done in the past so interested to see how things come on
