That's a good idea Dove, I'll have to ask OH if we have scales. He does all the cooking

Thanks Hosta, not sure if we have any kitchen scales here, not really a cook. I did one of my flower beds today but looking at what's left I think I might have been a bit light handed with it.

Not ever used this before,the box says to sprinkle 70g per square metre or 2oz per sq yard. Would you say 70g is about a handful?  I'm assuming that this is good for any plants that I have in the beds. It's a mixture of perennials and biennuals and will be planting annuals later on.

How should the bed look when you've finished? Should there be a layer of it across the beds? I'm guessing that at that measurement, the 1.5 kg box should empty pretty quickly.

I may as well as get it done right as I don't often do anything to the soil other than plant in to it.

Thanks for any info

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
