Today I feel so happy....

I'm very happy that everything is growing, blue skies and lovely spring flowers.

GG, did you get to the Botanical gardens? Went there last year and had a lovely day out.

KEF, if it's chilly and raining then I generally dont go out

Got these grape hyacinths on a whim last year, wasn't sure about them first but love them now, the tip seems to get brighter as the plant grows. This is their 2nd year

I do miss not being able to enlarge pics by a click, I'm not a fan of photobucket either

Not sure as only growing these for the first time this year, I would pinch out a couple and see how they do, if all good then I would do the rest. They remind me of nasturtians

Keep going Dan, the small seeds can be quite fiddly as I find it very hard to sow thinly. Too damp a soil is another culprit of seedlings keeling over. When I sow seeds now,  I get my trays ready water  from the bottom, wait until you can see the water come through the compost at the top. Sow your seeds, cover with some fine compost and press down gently. I find that way the water is getting absorbed into the top layer. That's about all the water they get until they are bigger

Nasturtians are good seeds to try

Thats the plant that's growing outside my garden and behind the house in a damp shady spot. Reminds me of my childhood in a way, walking the dogs and seeing the berries in the hedgerows.

Can I save lavender

I would do the same, I'd keep an eye out for any fresh growth and slowly cut of the not so good leaves.  Rescue plants can often do very well with a bit of tlc

Clematus montana or triffid?

I'd leave it be for a while, mine is only just really putting on any growth, most of it is still stick. I'd wait until it's actively growing and the flowers have gone.
