The verbena seeds that I sowed mid January, are at last growing I had almost given up hope but thought I'd leave them be, just in case

I know what you mean nut, haven't done any sowing for weeks but managed to a do bit today.

Sweat pea -disaster

I do like sweetpeas, I'd be tempted to have another go now that it's warmer and get some already grown in. Just sowed climbing nasturtians today, really easy to grow and I love the seeds

I've sowed some corncockles for the first time this year. Mine were sown into seed trays in a cold frame though and not directly into the ground.

Compost bins - tips welcome!

I've got a darlek one as I don't have a lot of space. Did get some compost out of it last year. It's in a sunny spot and I put a mixture of paper, veg scraps and garden waste into it.

I've taken cuttings here and hoping for the best. Picked mine up from a market last year and they grew into lovely shrubs

Got a couple of the bowles mauve type, bought them from a market last year.They have flowered their socks off for about 9 months, grew into lovely shrubs. Not looking so great now. I've got the purple coloured leaves and the buds on mine as well. I've hastily taken some cuttings, if they don't take I will definatley get some more and have a go at taking some cuttings next year
