Always good to give plants new homes

Seeds are up!

Now that you asked I can't remember Vic. The seeds came from the seed swop here and I think all it said was Monarda but I think it's a perennial type. Will have to wait and see

Ha ha Bob I don't like tomatoes but you obviously have a taste for them.

Very pleased for you Going to Seed, I feel the same way about Larkspur, no sign of them yet though.

I love it too Jonesk, cuttings are fun too

Not sure if my penstenomons are staying in or going out? The propagator is on a sunny windowsill, the soil is still moist but I'm bit worried about gettting that white fluffy fungus. Will keep an eye on them

Quite pleased.....

Two! That's even better We would love one but no space here. You must grow a lot of plants and they've even got music......maybe? Do you sell the produce?

I wing it all the time Wonky, usually works out ok

Managed an hour before giving up because of the heavy showers and wind. A few more jobs done, hoed and threw some bfb on on the beds.

Emptied a pot full of crocosmia and saved a couple of Dicentra type plants that were caught up in it. Have been meaning to do this job for about 2 years.  Noticed that honesty is now self seeding.  Split a large clump of Innula and replanted some croscosmia in it's place. Potted up any stragglers

Love the sound of your polytunnel Hosta, you must be able to grow so much stuff in there and it doesn't matter what's the weather is like.

Still not convinced that it is a penstenom Wonky, but it might be

Interesting plants that you are all  growing I don't mind a bit of red valerian, just needs keeping an eye on. I had loads of monarda seedlings last year Vic, they grew into big plants quickly. I've a couple planted out now and should flower this year. Not had these plants before so lots to look forward to

Excellent nut, I found some aquilegia seeds the other day. I take it yours are from an Autumn sowing? Good going on the clem and the Daphne too.

I've been sowing seeds for a few years now, don't think I'll ever tire of it

Not yet apart from checking my seed trays, I have germination! Weather is looking slightly better than anticipated so it might be a gardenening day after all.

I like your forward thinking on the sleep front, always a fan of the afternoon nap It's always good to break the routine from time to time. Enjoy yourself
