Thanks guys. Wow...thanks Obelixx  that's quite a few. I have Phlox, Campanula, Sweet Woodruff, White Ragged Robin, Pom pom primulas, Jasmine, Foxglove 'Alba', Cosmos Purity, Mugwort (not white but very good under your pillow or above your bed for good dreams), white Pansies, Nicotiana 'Jasmine Tobacco' and Chrysanths that I took cuttings from one of those awful flower bunches where they put colouring in the water to make them different colours. Hoping they come white. Am a bit of a plant hoarder so am needing some nice cottagey styles. Which geranium would be best? I have seen some get very leggy???

What are you sowing now?

Hey folks, I put one up myself about my garden but then saw this so thought I would add them here too so you can see the difference since January this year  A lot of hard work and its in its first year so will hopefully improve and fill out in the next couple of years. Everything has been grown from seed other than a couple of things I fetched from the cottage






 I also now have a rescue dog who is making my lawn polkadot

Thank You Verdun. It has taken a lot of time and effort. I have enjoyed the whole experience and have grown everything from seed as well. I have the use of my elderly neighbours greenhouses (2 of them) and worked out that I have only spent about £40 on seeds
