Bulbs in gravel

I'm a fan of these little plants too and trying to get a big clump of them here. If you want rid, then then they should be fairly easy to dig out.  Any weed killer would work but if you spray every where, you will be killing all the small creatures too

Potting on help with so many seedlings!

My local nursery gives away it's surplus pots as well as taking in customers unwanted ones, continuous recycling

Move it now?

Thanks everyone, I've never managed to get one to self seed. Don't think I've had much luck with growing these from seed either. Will get out as much of the root I can and water well to try and avoid the swoon. Sad fate for your daughters Lyn

Have you got yours yet?

No I don't Tetley, it's really wasteful. I agree sensible debate is good and to be encouraged. Agreeing to differ sounds good

Such pretty planting Victoria and always a pleasure to see your flower beds chicky

Nice work Hefty, I didn't notice the sign before. I must have a quick check on the oxe eye daisies, sweet rocket and yarrow that I planted in the alley behind the garden.

Really pleased with my mix match of cheap daffs bought last year


 

Beds are looking a bit green but things starting to come out

Excellent news That can be shifted tomorrow. Fingers crossed for flowers as well then. They are both purple, bought as small plants last year. I haven't had aquilegia in my garden for while now. Thanks both

I rediscovered this smaller plant a couple of weeks ago. I think I've planted it too far back and want to move it.

It's perked up a bit and putting on some new growth. I'm thinking it will be alright to move a couple of feet? It looks so small compared to the other one planted at the same time last year. Any chance of flowers this year?


 


 Thanks

Watching seedlings grow 2016

Not embrassing at all Andy. Looking good  I'd be tempted to have a go at pricking out the cosmos and plant quite deeply. Not sure about the other, they still look a bit small to me. Hardy annuals like cosmos are germinating outside, so they will fine just get them used to being outside bit by bit.

My first seedlings into pots Echium blue bedder and some corncockles.


Sowed my first seeds only 23 days ago so very pleased. Have held off sowing anymore as the seedhouse is doing it's job and have loads up. The good thing is it's only April so I can still change my mind about that

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Good name for it Wintersong. Pricked out some corncockles and some more blue bedder. Having second thoughts about sowing anything else at the moment, I'm already having to shuffle things around a bit.
