Great pics! I'm going to give sunflowers a go this year, so really interested in this thread.

I missed it too. Love seeing 'before and after' shots - they're looking lovely!

Lovely weather to garden

Yes, it's been beautifully sunny here too - what a treat. I lifted and divided some snowdrops, planted some of my lupins (hard work! hope they survive this early), and sowed some 'Poached Egg Plant' seeds.

Can't beat the sense of achievement you feel when you come indoors after a productive session in the sun 

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

I'll definitely sow mine direct next year. It was hard work planting the seedlings. But I just couldn't wait to plant something indoors!

That would look great with flowers in it.

Sweet Peas

So sorry to hear about your son, I can see why they're so special.  It sounds as if they are growing nicely.

I sowed some a few weeks ago for the first time, planted them outside today - they're very small though.

Seeds come to life!!!

That's a good tip Fruitcake, thanks.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Set up bamboo canes and planted some sweet pea seedlings in the garden. It was hard work! I sowed way too many sweet pea seeds - must sow less next time, and probably straight into the garden will be much easier.

Looking forward to a few glasses of wine later!

Hi Gardengirl, no I didn't put the Larkspur seeds somewhere cold first - I just treated them the same as all the others.

Oooh, great idea!  I'm planting seeds for the first time this year; it's so exciting to see them popping up. Interesting to see what your Poached Egg plant and Morning Glory seedlings look like - I'll be planting some of those in the near future. They look interesting.

Here are mine:



Foxglove (tiny little things!):









 Lupins - these got big and sturdy quite quickly:


and my little Cherry Tomato plants:

Winter pansies

Is it too late to buy them (online) and plant them?
