Anyone done any gardening today?

Still no gardening, still raining

snap dragons,

Posted: 10/01/2016 at 13:25

One year I sowed snapdragons indoors around this time and like you most came up. That year the Winter was mild so I potted them on and kept them in closed coldframes. They did really well. It was the year of the snap dragon!

The main challenge you have is space and light. If the weather turns cold and they don't make it you can always sow some more a bit later on

 

Can I plant these out now?

Always worth potting things on to get bigger before planting out. Although have some foxgloves and jacobs ladder in pots which I plan to plant out when it stops raining.

I can see a couple of bulbs coming through and the strawberry plant in the corner. The rest looks like weeds.

I'm very pleased with my cuttings taken last year, it's been so mild they haven't stopped growing

Root Trainers

I've not ever used them but I've heard that they are good for plants like sweetpeas that like a good root run

I've treated myself ...

I've not used a heated propagater before, what sort of things are you going to sow apart from the peppers and chillis? I have done indoor january sowings of things before, a bit hit and miss but somethings did well. This house doesn't have any deep  windowsills so lack the space here otherwise I might be tempted to sow something

I hope you dont' feel bad pansyface, you asked a simple question about someone that you are concerned about. There's nothing wrong in that, there's is also no difference in you asking if Jo is alright to Garden girl asking about Wonder boy.

Sometimes I find this forum a bit of a forum by comittee where there seems to be some unwritten rule book about what you can say/post to whom But I think it's the  best gardening forum out there and I enjoy the gardening chat I've been here a while too so know there's a few people here who have done the I'm leaving/Don't go/ I'm back thing including a couple who are commenting on this.
