scented bedding plants

I'd go for night scented stock as well, looks very insignificant in the day time but once evening comes the flowers open and the smell is beautiful. Grow them every year. Sowed some about a week ago  and they are up

Thanks fidget still getting my head round all the different feeds. They get a lot of sun and water, here's hoping for a bumper crop

Hi everyone, first time growing courgettes here also. Starting to see maybe little courgettes with a possibilty of a flower head developing.. Don't have a lot of cash. Bookertoo can I feed them with general feed such as a tomato feed or do they really need what you had suggested?

Is there such a thing as dark purple stem snap dragons?

I have some snapdragons that do have a much darker red/purple stems/leaves and I have found that they give rise to the darker colours

Sounds beautiful nutyes it really is a lovely time especially when all the elements come together

Part time work is great, I'm calling it my early semi retirement I feel completly different by reducing my hours and it has given me the time and freedom  to get on with the important things in life

Not sure PaperFlowers, although in theory they should. They are only in small pots, they are about 3 inches big, got a few little roots poking through the bottom. Will let them grow a little more before contemplating putting them out. I try and grow things on a bit so I don't lose them all overnight by the slugs and snails

The Larkspurs I grew from last seed, were too small to go out so they were over wintered in a cold frame last year and I planted them out about a month ago and they are about to flower. I had 3 of the 6 survived but that was probably down to me completly neglecting them

Hi Dove, yes I have quite a few of them,I do reuse seed compost as well.This happened last year, thought I was growing sweetpeas but up popped a couple of larkspurs, that I'd given up on months ago. On a bonus this year, a lot of the larkspurs germinated...still too small to go out though

Had another look at them tonight, they do look like foxgloves, they are doing better than the ones that I have sown
