Watching seedlings grow

Posted: 03/04/2015 at 09:36

Christine....3 sweet peas in a pot is good, although I sow only one in root trainers.

Hostafan.... Took your advise and planted the Ricinus on the 1st April, no sign yet.

Fishy..... my Zinnias in tiny individually in modules. Never knew ab6out root disturbance, did the same last year, potted on and they were fine.

GG... I always wait until the seedlings have at least 2 pairs of true leaves before I prick out. You may need to pot the calendula on again into something deeper. 

Holyhocks looking good Lena, watch for rust, you could use an anti fungal spray when they are bigger, before the rust sets in.

Isnt it a lovely time, all the new life popping up, my fav season of the year!

greenhouse plastic fittings

Weighting down the bottom of these is no good,all you have is the bottom in place and the wind will blow the top over. you have to tie them in at the top, just on the apex bit, on the actual fitting not the upright rods. Put 2 eyelet rings in your wall with rawl plugs them string a stout rope around firmly fixed.

Thank you everyone, it was a nice day, as they go! Just a small do with family only.

having worked with undertakers as in bearers/grave dIggers/ headstone making, we are not really strangers to funerals, different when its your own though.

I just need to sort a few more things out then all systems go for the garden.

So far I have probably only needed one death certificate, once its registered it seems to be circulated. Didnt need one for insurances, they just looked it up on their computer!

Regarding planning your own funerals, we are not wholly in agreement with that, as its the last thing you can do for your loved ones, its nice for the family to plan it and the undertaker will advice on whats correct and required. All a matter of choice I suppose.

Pales early

Hots later

But as Bob says, if it grows for me and is happy and was free of cheap, thats ok by me.

G'luck Flower. I hope they perform for you second time around. Keep us posted on how you get on

 PS: Is it just me being a dufus or does the quote thingy not work on this forum?

The quote thingy does work, you have to click on 'quote'  on the bottom right hand corner of the box you want to quote from, then it will say 'unquote'  click on that, then inyour posting box just click on the quote marks.

My seeds are all started off in the kitchen then once they are up they go in the conservatory, when they are big enough to be pricked out they go to the greenhouse, far too cold at nights for seeds yet.

Wilted seedlings! :(

Propagators can produce weak growth, annuals do better struggling a bit, they definitely should not have been fed, bit like feeding your young baby a big mixed grill dinner,  there is still time to sow some more, using natures propagator.
