Posted: 26/03/2015 at 21:08

Loving my seedlings :)

all my spring sweer peas doing ok except 3 ridiculously leggy ones, larkspur, stocks, sweet rocket all just sprouting, transferred tomato seedlings ( well my almost 4 year old did, along with sowing more larkspur and sweet peas by herself, the most lovely half hour i've had for ages!) into 10cm pots, very much hoping to have plaenty of lovely things to plant out !

well done mary, hope they do well for you. itook 7 cutting s of my gertrude jekyll last autumn, advice here was to leave undisturbed for 12-1 8 months which is what i'm doing ( it's sooo hard not to know how they're doing!) only a couple aren't black, fingers crossed, i'd love 3 more gertrudes
