Posted: 12/04/2013 at 18:31

Looking good Matt Have reminded me re the nasturtians, got plans to sow some some stuff this weekend

had your final frost yet - taking a gamble?

Don't know anything about seeding a lawn sorry, but do think we are all might get some more frosts this year

Seeds are up

My early sowings seemed on the whole to  have  pulled  though  and some annuals sown outside in the frames have germinated.

Corn cockle seeds off the swop, have germinated and looking very strong

 

How long before I furtle in my seeds???

arjak, seedling angst Brillilant. When I sow the seeds I do write the date on the label..............but have never thought about writing the expected germaination date on there as well

Red, I don't have a greenhouse, have you thought about using coldframes? Mine are basically sturdy, mini greenhouses.

To water, or not to water

 Hi Loz, I water from the bottom too, I see the compost change colour and then I sow on top of this and gently pat down the seeds so the water is absorbed in the top layer if that makes sense.

Where are you keeping the seed trays?

First new year resolution for 2014

Can't resist packets of seed, all the better when they are discounted at the end of the season. Also a sucker for the "sad" corner of places like B&Q etc, always have a look and see if any can be saved. LIke Muddy Paws says it would be rude not to

Today I feel so happy....

I'd give the sweetpeas a bit longer, I have found with sweetpeas if the conditions are right they will mostly germinate. Not grown the others This is my first year of growing veg.

Growing from seed is brilliant

Today I feel so happy....
