Sweet Peas

I would let them grow a bit more before pinching them out. They do best outside once you've got them used to the lower temps

Are These Monarda Seedlings?

I've got a few surplus still hanging around, I've repotted mine into a slightly larger pot.  I'm sure they will be ok until you decided where you want it

Thank you Dove, will have a look at the shoots today. I got rid of a non flowering honeysuckle not so long ago. I just want the scented one, beautiful

Honesty flowers

Lovely show Nut. I really like Honesty. I have a white one in flower at the moment.

Watery I grow them in individual deeper seed pots and then repot into bigger pots than would normally use. They have a large tap roots.Sometimes I might just plant straight out into the garden. I always start them outside.

They are real toughies and seem to be able to stand up to a variety of conditions, including my cats. Once you have one, you'll have them forever, loads of seeds. Hoping my purple ones flower this year

How about some Honeysuckle? I am on the right side of a boundary with huge confier type things, doesn't block my light and I've noticed a wild type of Honeysuckle in amongst them. Been working out how to take cuttings from it

Pallets

Thanks GWRS, it's got my first trays in there now. We've managed to acquire some more pallets, not sure what we are going to do with yet.

No seeds up for me yet Gardengirl, I've found one window sill in the house, so have some penstemons seeds  there. Not grown them from seed before but I really like them. Easy to take cuttings from too

Are These Monarda Seedlings?

The little ones round the edge of the pot look like Monardas. I have some in the ground and left over in pots and they look like that. Grew them from seed last year, great germination and really easy to grow. Looking forward to seeing them flower this year.

 

Plant Food

I generally don't bother with feeding my plants in the garden but this year I will be treating them to some blood fish and bone sprinkled on the beds.

dry soil due to neighbour's conifers

Posted: 20/03/2016 at 09:59

I have a similar situation to you, there is a fence before the conifers so the soil gets really dried out. I've found that honesty and sweet rocket seem to cope well after a few waters in. Although classed as a biennual the sweet rocket seems to go for ages
