Over the last couple of days I've seen some tortoiseshells, peacocks and a comma, so lovely to see. Winter has gone, I love Spring time

Great pictures no expert, I like the bench a lot. Pallets are great!

first seeds sown ...

Posted: 16/03/2014 at 21:12

Looking really good djjj. I wouldn't worry too much about the temperature at the moment. I do the same as chicky. I always think that the condensation is a good thing when you want things to germinate as it's getting warm and moist there. It's when they are up that you have to think a lot more about ventilation.

Best of luck with your first sowings, I only started a couple of years ago and it never ceases to amaze me how many plants you can get from sowing seeds

Oh eck

Eggs, and cooking with them

Just got some chickens, I'm thinking  pickled eggs for the surplus

Which annual and perenial seedlings should be 'pinched out'?

Posted: 15/03/2014 at 23:49

I tend to pinch out most of plants just to see what happens and I don't think I've killed any of them yet by doing this.

Wallflowers, snapdragons, night scented stock, cosmos are some that have done well.

I think as long as the plant has good healthy growth and they have a good root system they should respond well


What plants go well with lupins?

Posted: 15/03/2014 at 23:42

Harden them off slowly and they should be fine to plant out,mine are putting on a lot of growth.  They are hardy so once used to the outdoors they will be fine. Lovely plants
