I sowed another batch this week, a few I had through the seedswap and tomatoes I missed on the first sowing. And some courgettes, haven't done veg for years.

Of course we're interested GG. I've had a heavy pricking out day. I had to go and get more compost.

Very large garden - where to start

If I have nice plants that are over-run by weeds I dig up, split and pot up some nice bits and chuck the rest. That way you can pull out any weed roots, twitch is very obvious then quarentine them in the pots and if nothing nasty has appeared by autumn you can replant. In the meantime the glyphosate can deal with what's left.

Cosmos and possibly rocket might appreciate some fleece or a sheet of newspaper. The restshould be OK. Seeds that have germinated outside aren't as fragile as seedlings taken out of a greenhouse.

You're right GG. Mostly they don't exist do they?

GG  'feeling like a murderer' is the reason I always end up with far more plants than I need. I'm up to my eyes in pricked out seedlings now.

I'll have to make something slightly smaller. These are fine for supermarket, lift it into the car stuff but me being on the short side they tend to touch down if I have to carry them far. 

Don't forget to post yours.

Eryngium giganteum are easy artjak. All that in and out of the fridge business can be avoided by sowing them when the plant naturally drops it's seed and leaving them outside to sort themselves out. After that they just go round and round in the garden as long as you let them seed.

E.planum germinated well but I couldn't keep it alive long term
