Watching seedlings grow

Posted: 15/04/2015 at 20:18

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

Anyone done any gardening today?

Pinching out

Don't think it would do any harm, I'd expect them to get a bushier. Don't think I've ever pinched out Cosmos. Maybe do a couple and see what happens?

Beautiful wallflowers Matty, fab colours, do you remember the name of them? I've only tried cuttings on the Bowles Mauve type but I guess it's the same.

I grew some Cloth of Gold one year and they did flower well in their second year

Yes will both will fine outside. I split a large clump of hardy geraniums and have potted them up to grow on a bit before I plant them
