It s a grey day in North Cornwall. Lots of heavy rain. After a sunny one yesterday it

looks as if we are in for a bad spell again. I am so pleased i have a greenhouse to potter in.

Morning fellow planters. I normally  sow the seeds straight into the ground.

I have read in the magazine about sowing first in seed trays or root trainers.The root trainers are in use already and i was wondering how many seeds to a cell.

Has anyone else tried this? Your advice would be very useful.

In future you need lots of drainage in the pots. Better luck next year. Soon you will be able to buy daffs in pots which are in flower. Cheat. Plant the new small pots  into your large one for a colourful display

After the awful rain, it was a mild day in north Cornwall. So i put my winter woolies on and got stuck in to the garden.It was lovely being outside and looking at the bulbs being to appear. Like Monty i have a retriever dog and i think he enjoyed it to. The big surprise was the French lavender was in flower. 

Roll on spring.
