I have no idea nut, I just bought a few bags of cheap mini daff bulbs probably from Wilkos or B&M. There seems to be all sorts in there

I've not seen anything like those orange things before nut They are very strange

Lovely shades of purple Fairy, think it's my fav colour

I'm opting for mini daffs these days, these filled the garden with scent this morning

I'm the same here Hefty, I tend not to sow inside or start too early anymore. All my seed trays are outside

Bagged a bargain?

That is a good price Sophie. I'm thinking of getting some more climbers, thanks

You definatley have been busy, Busy Lizzie, looking good. I like your table lots of space for them

I've sown a few other bits. I use these strips when I want to grow smaller amounts of different varieties...........well that is the idea.  Good if you haven't got a lot of space as you can sow 5 different things under one hood.

Divided and potted up some Hostas. Got seven new plants out of one so very happy with that. I had a go at taking some sweet rocket cuttings and sowed some more annuals.Hightlights of the day for me were the ladybirds and a brand new bed for me to plant up! Started with a Lupin

They seem to like Honesty
