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.


Really pleased with how things are going, lots of things coming through, cosmos, rudebekia today

Maybe one more sowing session then I'll be calling it a day until the Autumn

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



Brand new bed, one plant in

Did you have to water it all or did the grit keep it moist? Could you just sow it and then forget about it?

They are the ones Kitty I sowed them in seed tray in my frame with a lid and they took 2 weeks to come up. I think I've got about 10  so hoping there will be some more

Nut congratualtions Where was it for all this time, the pot I mean?

I do think they can  grow quite big. I'm sure on the farm one of them formed part of a hedge. I'd opt for the larger space.
