It looks a bit like a type of phacelia that I'm trying to grow here.

Courgettes - anyone put theirs out yet?

I sowed late here Zoomer and only 2 germinated. I've just potted them up into small pots in the mini greenhouse

Lovely, thanks for the picture. My grandads house had returning swallows and swifts

The pictures aren't as large as they were and I can't enlarge them on laptop. Miss being able to do that

GWRS and Michael. Poor germination from those trays with the green stuff, just water added. I think it must be a combination of wet soil and strong sunlight? Maybe? Once it started it's a real pain, it's really hard to judge how wet the soil is and seeds really struggle to get through it.

Not much done in the garden apart from boxing up some for market tomorrow, hope I sell them, I'm needing the space

It's been a beautiful day Potted on lots of small plants, divided some speedwell that I just bought as well as some large clumps of primoses. Took some more penstenmon cuttings. Have done lots of watering and moving things about.

I have quite a bit of that green stuff on top of the compost as well. Very annoying. Pots that were in my mini greenhouses seem to get more of it.

New flower beds need filling

Bowles Mauve wallflowers are lovely, flower continually and need very little care. Just trim off the spent flowering stems and they just keep growing new ones

Slugs and snails are the most likely culprit, any slime about?
