Beaten by the light again. 

Cleaned the greenhouse roof. So much brighter now.

Potted on foxgloves, lupins and ami. 

Gave one of the cold frames a good scrub. 

Off to get ready now for a lovely meal with friends in Stamford. Going for Nepales. Yum!

What a lovely post. I was working all day to day - sadly the day job and not in the garden. booo. 

Seeds - big and little

Thanks for the tips. The advice on seed packets often seems very generic. I bet if I followed it more I might have more success (!) but I much prefer the advice from people on here, and am grateful for it.

thanks again!

Seeds - big and little

Hello

im always unsure as to how deep to sow seeds in trays. Is it generally acceptable to apply a thin cover to tiny seeds and slightly deeper for larger ones? 

also, is it always best to water from below or do some seeds need a drenching from above?

thanks for any seed tips.

Strawberry plants

I just let mine keep going - and they seem to carry on! Four years on and the last crop was the largest and tastiest yet. Mine are in a large raised trough. They do tend to run and develop new ones as well.
