Mine were in an overgrown pot for a few years  Kitty, they didn't grow very big as there wasn't the room in there for them. I managed to get them out so they are in little pots for now and will plant out in the garden later

They look a bit floppy. Have you just planted them? They look like they could do with a drink or they have gone into some sort of shock maybe.

A lot of plants in shops have spent their lives inside so they are not used to outside temperatures

I have no idea nut, I just bought a few bags of cheap mini daff bulbs probably from Wilkos or B&M. There seems to be all sorts in there

I've not seen anything like those orange things before nut They are very strange

Lovely shades of purple Fairy, think it's my fav colour

I'm opting for mini daffs these days, these filled the garden with scent this morning


I wasn't expected to get a 4 headed daff though

I'm the same here Hefty, I tend not to sow inside or start too early anymore. All my seed trays are outside

Bagged a bargain?

That is a good price Sophie. I'm thinking of getting some more climbers, thanks

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


Looking good Tiggs
