Far to early, sow some more beginning of March, they will be fine.

I grew these 50 for £2.50. Very easy to grow and beautiful flowers, they make good size tubers for the following year.

If you find the soil drying out, use a fine mist spray bottle. That way they wont get soaked.

I agree with all of the above posts, but wont sow any annuals till mid March. I can never plant out till start of June so no point in sowing earlier.

Making a wildlife pond

Posted: 31/01/2015 at 16:08

We made a pond last summer, I looked at the pre formed, and in fact bought one! What a mistake it was, , it didnt have a very slopey end for little baby newts and frongs to climb out of, it was an absolute pain in the wotsit to dig the hole exactly like the contours which is absolutely crucial, so dumped that and bought this.

Its very good, easy to cut and lay, we used the brown side uppermost but that is a matter of choice.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Bought the seed compost, nice lot of time to warm it before sowing.

Thank you Dove, somehow I didnt think it was something Daniel could sort out. I do find this forecast extremely accurate for where we live, and of course, very handy. OH uses it to plan his day.

dont be tempted to sow the Cleome till the latest times shown on the packet, they really are a heat loving plant, dont be tempted to plant out until June, they will go right through the season then.

No advert on mine, have you got Adblocker installed. The adverts do pay for the site to stay open though.
