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

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

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.

Love a bit of guerilla gardening Hefty! Your garden is so bright and cheerful. Those mini daffs are lovely .What is that blue clump next to the hyacynth?

Thanks Lorna, my partner makes all my frames for me. So far so good with the scabious, they were a cheap packet from Wilkos. I've just sown a giant type and some perennnial little blue ones so will have to wait and see how they do.

Nut great collection! I think this year I'll give autumn and winter sowings a go

All your little plants are looking really strong and healthy Vic

Hope to do some more sowing tomorrow, I've got some cornflowers and corncockles pocking through today
