May In Your Garden

I think I would be disappointed at Chelsea just because you cannot walk around the gardens, so your impression would not be as good as the TV view.

Debbie very impressive I would think it will be fine with just the top layer. I turned all of mine, just because they fell that way, I have sown it with poppies as an experiment.

FC will you get first dibs on the rescue plants?

Wintersong put your feet up and have a nice iced tea.

Lottie what sort of cake?

This is so variable, I sowed seeds that were due to flower in 6 weeks(according to the packet) and the poor weather  in April and May means that they are only 2 inches tall.  I have some seeds that say 10 weeks and they are struggling. It would also depend on the facilities you have and location. At this time of year I am doing much better with biennials.

Which annuals are you trying?

Can I reccommend this article

I have spent the last 2 days planting out like crazy, if I do not get them in soon, my clay soil will have backed hard. I am in the south-east?

Reviving dried bedding, lost instructions

I tried pelargoniums, petunias and fuchsias, the petunias have been useless, 1 in 5 for the fuchsias and 50% of the geraniums are coming back to life!
