Petunia Seedlings

Posted: 17/04/2016 at 10:23
I wouldn't bother to sow those petunia seeds now, I would look for some plugs to bring on. I find they are quite slow growing, only those and Lobelia are sown early here.
The seeds last for a good few years though, so keep them for next year.

I have seen houses called Dun Roamin, I often wonder if they have a horse in the garden.
Ours is called Moorview, for obvious reasons, trouble is, so is everyone else's nearby.

Thank you folks, mustn't be sad though, he looked after me for more years than most people's parents, as they were both very young when I was born, and did lots of things he wanted to do.
He had a marvelous long retirement, here in this gorgeous place, and five years ago allowed us to build on so ve could live here too. (30years)

I didn't mind at all looking after either them, it's not for long is it. Lots of people here have done the same, but I certainly would not blame anyone if they could do it.

The nurses and care workers did their very best, you can't blame them for any lack of care, it's the ones above, their hand are tied.
Anyway, back to normal.

Just as Chicky said, after doing all the things that were urgently needed, I wanted to get out.
Just slept for 12 hours, woke at 9.30.

Looking forward to seeing you soon Dove, I wish I could have got out to meet DD.

It is a lovely place Liri, I quite often used to take mum up there with a flask and pasty.

You're right Fishy, that's me with the ice creams.

It was very cold and at the top you could hardly stand up for the wind blowing, lovely though, then take away fish and chips so no cooking.

I don't prick out until the seedlings are much bigger, they are stronger if you leave them, they don't succumb to rot, and they grow quicker right from that stage. everyone has a different way of doing things so do what you feel is right for you.

heres mine, tomorrow I will tip the whole  tray out on the bench and gently tease them apart. Them I will pot up in quite small pots, I make those paper ones with the Potter, then grow on and repot later.
