Wedding flowers for September

Posted: 29/04/2013 at 20:57

Not sure what sort of arrangements you're going for Carrie, but you could try some night scented stock or maybe the other faster growing types.

The night scented one has a trailing habit, the flowers and the scent come out in the evenings

Evening  everyone, finally did some proper pricking out and potting on today and a general potter about. So good to be seeing everything growing. The sun was shining and it was almost t shirt weather

I do all my growing in my coldframes, they are not the traditional on the floor types, more like mini sturdy greenhouses. Definately open in the day now and sometimes at night

Did very well for £10

Hi Jeaannie, just started growing these myself. What did you sow them into?  They sound quite large and maybe in need of potting on to bigger pots. I've got a couple come up and they look big seedlings

Might be worth starting to harden them off as well.
