Just pricked out some Cosmos, tagetes and sweet rocket seedlings.

Just potted up 14 pelargonium cuttings into my nicely washed pots!

I don't always wash pots, but as I'm planning to sell the plants, I thought it better to have clean pots.

I always start mine indoors. I've just planted out my first batch and the second is just emerging.

Yes you can pot them up.

They may come true. It will depends on whether you've got only one variety already or several different ones.

No need to keep them warm. They are tough! May be best to keep them somewhere sheltered while we have this Artic blast though!

I think the first and last ones are hebes. Not sure how well they will transplant.

I have some of that dead nettle in my shady garden. It certainly brightens it up. The bees were loving it yesterday. It does spread though so I have to pull out the bits that go where I don't want it.

Yesterday I planted some broad beans, carrot, parsnip and 1 () cabbage grown in modules. Also sowed some flat leaved parsley and lettuce leaves in containers.

Today I washed 25 pots ready for potting up pelargonium cuttings. Forked, fed and spread some old compost on my "pastels" border. Also direct sowed some seeds of cornflower, honesty and nigella.

Did a bit of grass edging too.

Same thing happened to mine. I get a lot of those tiny black slugs nibble mine leaving them a bit ragged, but this year they ate the lot!

I grow my out door tomatoes in large pots and greenhouse ones in a growbag with tomato rings. I usually plant tagetes with them and, (fingers crossed), have not had any whitefly.

Spring flowering bulbs taking up space

I've had some Tete-aTetes in bulb baskets for several years. I do leave them in situ as long as possible and feed or water with tomato food if dry but, then when I want the space, I just lift them out and store under our old brick built bar-b-q. They are then replanted in autumn.
