My first compost bin was called Monty

Is it possible to divide Sweet Williams?

Hi nut, yes they were, can't remember now which ones you had. I know that I collected from some pinks and some dark reds. I gave away a lot of the bigger plants that I grew, but the ones I have will flower this year, will collect the seed again.

When I've had them in previous gardens, sometimes they did grow little off shoots so the plant kept on going for a few years, sometimes they can self seed as well.The seeds are easy to collect and germinate really quickly.

I had some nice plants last year so collected the seeds and the new plants will be flowering soon. I picked what I thought was the nicest colour so will be interesting to see if they flower the same. I really like sweet williams

Brilliant, bet it tasted good. I've not done a lot of veg but it's great growing your own food

What a lovely clump, you will get a good show of them. I've never split them but can't see why not with a clump this size

Watching seedlings grow

Great pics of seedlings, everyones been busy. Pricked out my first cosmos, statice and cornflowers, itchy to get some more done  but they aren't ready yet.

Those ones by the chair Fishy look really healthy and chunky plants, I don't know what they are either

Each one of those seedlings should develop into an individual plant, how many you pot on depends on your patience, pots and available space. That's the great thing about growing from seed, you get loads for you money and time

They look really healthy so you should get a good show later this year

Showing off my first ever 'real' garden

Looking really good, like the planter pallets and your coldframe. The sweet peas are going to look really nice.  Gardening is great, once you get started you wondered what you did with your time
