Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Sounds like things are moving quickly Gardeners Boy, very exciting

It was chilly out there today Hosta, did a couple of hours, in multiple layers of clothing.  Sowed some giant and perennial scabious, some maltese cross, honesty and foxgloves. I've done some more but can't remember already.

So far so good with the cuttings. All but one are standing up and looking healthy

I've sown them both before in seed trays or strips. I'd bury the honesty seeds a bit deeper as they are larger seeds and the plant grows strong roots. I'd would pot on quite quickly once they are up and growing. The roots like a lot of space.

I've sown some myself today. This time I'm sowing one seed into each 2" cell. I'm not covering them and they are outside in one of my open frames.

I had a really good germination rate last year with the lychnis.

It's a great feeling Hosta When I moved to my first garden I hadn't grown anything before other than houseplants. It was my partner who really encouraged me to start sowing seeds. I remember him building me my first cold frame and staying it was easy to do. I've never stopped

I must remember to do Autumn sowings too this year

Growing from seed is more enjoyable than just buying plants in for me. I started when I got my first ever garden about 5 years ago and I never tire of it. Although taking cuttings is good too 

I also get so much pleasure when I see the insects feeding on the flowers that I have grown for them. I saw my first bee fly yesterday on a grape hyacyth that I planted in the Autumn

It's taught me to be patient but also to notice how quick the seasons come around.
