@Debbie welcome, a new garden sounds like a serious challenge, make sure you take plenty of photos.

@Dean what is is plant with the red flowers/bracts???

@KG those salvias look great.

I have been busy weeding and potting on today. Seedlings are still not growing

soil types acceptable to lavander

Can you grow them in pots away from the salt ? Can you provide them with some protection in the ground. Any thing is possible, if you are willing to put the effort in and you do not mind the time and cost if it is disappointing.

It has been a glorious day, I have done hours of weeding and planting out dahlias but do not seem to have made a dent in the list of jobs.

@WS lovely Ceanothus

@lottiebeans good to have you back, you probably picked the best time to go away as it has been so cold here.

@Swedboy I think it is the poor weather that has reduced your germination rate, when we get some sunshine they should romp away.

I have had this too, plastic gloves and a little washing up liquid on your fingers and you can rub them off. If you are in a non hosepipe area you could blast them off but I agree with Muddyfork squishing is better.
