Watching seedlings grow

Posted: 29/04/2015 at 20:56

Great pics of seedlings, everyones been busy. Pricked out my first cosmos, statice and cornflowers, itchy to get some more done  but they aren't ready yet.

Those ones by the chair Fishy look really healthy and chunky plants, I don't know what they are either


Larkspur seeds

Each one of those seedlings should develop into an individual plant, how many you pot on depends on your patience, pots and available space. That's the great thing about growing from seed, you get loads for you money and time

They look really healthy so you should get a good show later this year

Looking really good, like the planter pallets and your coldframe. The sweet peas are going to look really nice.  Gardening is great, once you get started you wondered what you did with your time

I would suggest ajuga as well, it can stand a lot trampling. Spreads really well, seems to grow any where and has lovely blue flowers in Spring

sweet peas

The tendrils will grow around supports in time. I like sweet peas to be bushy plants with lots of flower stems. If your plants are quite tall already you could tie in the main stalk and then pinch out or wait a bit and then do it

Brilliant, thanks both for the info, will give it a go if the sown ones don't come through.

Not long ago found a wheel barrow under a patch of brambles in the alley outside the garden. Perfectly useable and the tyres weren't flat! Been waiting for years to get a free wheel barrow. Not from the garden but very pleased with it
