Seeds are up

Fantastic results from the sowings last week, rudebekias up I grew them last year from seed for the first time and they are truly lovely plants. Took a while to get going due to very poor weather but they did put on a show. Especially happy that there's 8 Cappachino types poking through. Seen some great pictures on here of bees loving these flowers.

Good germination off the Cosmos, dwarf and taller varieties, ox eyed daisies, the angel wings, statice and cleomes. Not the grown the last 2 before, they were 20p each. Be good to see how they turn out

Whats your plans for the garden this year?

Sounds good I have the dark knight and a pale pink one too.  Looking forward to seeing them grow into useful screens for me and food for the butterflies.

Some great pictures here. As well as continuing with flowers grown from seed, will be focusing more on biennials and perennials, I have a tiny plot to grow a few veggies in. This will be a first for me.

Hi bunny, I was given some rooted cuttings end of last summer. Kept them in pots for a while outside but put them in the ground in the Autumn. They have survived the snow and look like they are starting to grow. They are tough.

Do you know where they are going to go?

Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 02/02/2013 at 22:31

Sweet peas are known for their deep root systems, if you cut back to the nearest shoots, you will get bushier plants in the long run. Sweet peas have a vrey long window of sowing.

Mine were looking leggy as well, I've moved them into the coldframes to harden them offf before I prick them out. I would say they need some protection in a coldframe or sheltered spot.
