Showing off my first ever 'real' garden

Posted: 19/04/2015 at 20:56

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

I would suggest ajuga as well, it can stand a lot trampling. Spreads really well, seems to grow any where and has lovely blue flowers in Spring

sweet peas

The tendrils will grow around supports in time. I like sweet peas to be bushy plants with lots of flower stems. If your plants are quite tall already you could tie in the main stalk and then pinch out or wait a bit and then do it

Brilliant, thanks both for the info, will give it a go if the sown ones don't come through.

Not long ago found a wheel barrow under a patch of brambles in the alley outside the garden. Perfectly useable and the tyres weren't flat! Been waiting for years to get a free wheel barrow. Not from the garden but very pleased with it

Germination times

Didn't know that you can germinate sweetcorn on damp kitchen roll Zoomer, do you find this is quicker than doing it in seed trays? Just sown some this way and they are in the plastic greenhouse

If you manage to grow one of these you will never be with out it, there are loads of viable seeds per plant. I found an old brown envelope with collected seeds in the bottom of some pots a few weeks ago. Loads had germinated without soil!

I've potted them up into medium sized pots and they will be planted out when big enough for flowers next year. I think they have quite large tap roots so I won't leave them to long in the pots. I've seen the purple ones in hedgerows, you can get them in white as well
