Just sown mine today, normal way, no probs, they don't take any longer than any others and will make big plants by the end of the year, ready to be planted out next Spring, keep under cover or sheltered for the winter.

Love the Echium, I have these in my garden, unfortunately died in the cold winter. I won't give up though, I sow more every year.

We are all raring to go, but don't be in too much rush or you will be disappointed. Theres nothing worse than when you've sown your seeds and they either don't come up or they are very tall, weak and leggy before you can plant them out, sit on your hands for awhile

Not sure what to do with this space.

Yvie,,how about a mannequin?  Dress it with a coat, hat, straw hair and ciggie.  I had one for a few years and it looked comical and lifelike 

Verdun, have those awful scary scarecrows got as far down as yours yet, life sized sitting on benches along the roads.

Not to worry Liri, I actually had to look back to previous posts because I couldn't remember what I was going to do over the weekend

Your daffs in the photos are lovely Marion, Spring is my favourite season, with all the new life bursting out.

You definitely got a bargain with those plants, I got some Potentilla last year and the rabbits came in and eat the lot down to to the ground.

I bought some plants last year on your recommendation to the site, they were very good, and have started shooting out now. I have the email too, so will have a look.

did your Agastashe Apache  (was  it) come to anything that you sowed last year.?

Polystyrene cups are perfect, but it's much too early to start them off now.

They are up in a few days and you can't plant them out until June, they hate the cold. 

I probably won't start mine until the 1st May, 

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

I still can't see the free postage, the basket says 5.50 for plant and 4.95 postage.
