Seedlings and propagation

Sounds like a good shopping trip aym280. So you are getting the seeds to germinate on damp tissue and then potting up?

All mine are being started outside this year although I think I might have identified one window sill that could fit a couple of propagators and it's quite sunny too

I really enjoyed my annuals last year. It was my first Summer in this garden so I grew some cornflowers, calendulas, candytuff, night scented stock, clary sage and rudebekkias. Atlhough I'm not sure if the ruddies are annuals, mine tend to come back. They really filled the space

I'm trying out larkspur, asters and snapdragons this year.

I get my tools from a car booty or local auctions. You can pick things up for a £1 a go.  I think I must have a border spade as it's a lot smaller than the one my partner uses. It's not so heavy and easier to use

Always good to see a bit of gardening on the TV. Enjoyed the Clem bit, the smaller ones are so pretty, not seen a lot of them before.

It's amazing how many plants you can get from packet of seeds, I'm always trying to sow thinly but can't help doing a few more........just for luck. Pots seem to reproduce here, I started off with none last year, got heaps now. Guaranteed I won't have enough of a particular size though.

One of the local nurseries here, lets you have their spare pots, you can also bring any unwanted ones back. Saves buying them.

 

Anyone started there cosmos seeds yet?

Beautiful pics, haven't seen the Antiquity type before.

My first seeds are in and  I popped into Wilkos for some cosmos seeds but they were sold out, so came back with some larkspur, scabious and some echium blue bedder. Not grown the echium before but it's meant to be good for the bees.

Beautiful day here. My first seeds are sown, snapdragons, some dwarf asters, sweet peas and night scented stock. Divided clumps and re planted snowdrops and grape hyacinths. So lovely to be outside, a few bees and some ladybirds about
