As a beginner gardener my lesson has been "just chuck the seeds in the bed and be done with the faffing". This winter I lovingly attempted to nurture verbena bonaris seeds. I managed to plant out 8 of the seedlings which keep being nibbled. They haven't really taken off.
I had some seeds left over so about a month ago I thought what the hey, I'll just scatter then in the bed next to the seedlings. These produced many more plantlets that look stronger than mine and are catching up!
