Sounds like a good plan RJ, it turned out really well last year. I love the self seeders
Glad some have been able to do a bit today. After a very enjoyable couple of days, rain has stopped play here Been out to check temp in my cold frame and my cuttings are still standing up right!
I should make a list of jobs that I'm considering so I don't forget them when I get out there again.
That's a very pretty show. Some of the annuals like the cornflowers and poppies might have self seeded but maybe not. There's a pale blue shorter flower that I recognise but forget the name I think that one is a perennial.
Did you just scatter the seeds last year?
Not ever grown them but I would expect the same of them as other spring bulbs planted at that time of year. Probably worth getting some good quality bulbs to maximise chance of success.
I've only ever seen them planted in the ground. I think they like damp shady positions
I've thought about buying stuff from there. I know I can get flea treatments for cats from Holland via Amazon delivered, instead of the vets saving myself at least a £10
Excellent That will give you loads for your pennies!
I would say as long as they are hardened off, planting them out shouldn't be a problem. Some growers sow outside in Autumn.
I sowed a lot of annuals last year to get a fast and quick show. It worked, the garden was full. It's the perfect time to sow them too. Things like candytuff are brilliant for filling in gaps, good for insects and can self seed if you leave them over winter. Cosmos are quick easy and full of flowers
I think perennials take longer to germinate, you've got a few up so there should be more. Plant propgation has taught me patience but the time seems to go quick. It's always about next year...........I'm already thinking of sprinkling fox glove seeds into shady places for next Spring!
Gorgeous colours Hefty, beautiful Spring show.
Not as colourful, but coming on nicely. My small shady bed, only planted in the Autumn
