worth buying primroses now?

Posted: 16/04/2013 at 19:32

Think thats a good price for them if you don't have any.  I have loads of the native type, they seem to grow like weeds here. Putting on a good show here at the moment. Some really lovely colours happening.

Talkback: Nesting robins

Not of nesting, but last year there were 3 differant robins in the garden

Today I feel so happy....

I spent a couple of happy hours seed sowing today

I love grape hyacinths Flo, as I can never remember exactly where they are, so when they come up it's always a surprise.

 

Seeds are up

The verbena seeds that I sowed mid January, are at last growing I had almost given up hope but thought I'd leave them be, just in case

I know what you mean nut, haven't done any sowing for weeks but managed to a do bit today.

Sweat pea -disaster

I do like sweetpeas, I'd be tempted to have another go now that it's warmer and get some already grown in. Just sowed climbing nasturtians today, really easy to grow and I love the seeds

Hi nut, yes they have are  doing really well, one of the stronger seedlings that I have. Sowed them in the frame on 18th March, probably germinated in about 2 weeks

I've sowed some corncockles for the first time this year. Mine were sown into seed trays in a cold frame though and not directly into the ground.

Compost bins - tips welcome!

I've got a darlek one as I don't have a lot of space. Did get some compost out of it last year. It's in a sunny spot and I put a mixture of paper, veg scraps and garden waste into it.
