Is this Elderflower?

I'll have to give it a go then. Is it best now, or should I wait until the flowers are more open?

Sunflowers

Hello Peeps, I've managed to germinate five sunflower seeds. They are about half a foot tall and in pots. Will they grow to their full potential in big pots or do they really need to be in the ground? Thanking you x

 

Dill

I put some dill seeds in for the first time about two months ago. They took a while to germinate but look really healthy. Can't wait to chomp on it!

I'm with scroggin; end of May for me. I'm in the midlands. in my experience if you put them in now they seem to grow much slower than if you put them in when it's a tad warmer. In the past I've been left with little plants that went in earlier than ones that I put in a little later.  Also of course, much less risk of frost.

Sorry to hear of your recent loss SFord. I hope you have lots of happy memories to think of, especially when you harvest your potatoes. Our feline friends bring us so much joy don't they?  will you think about giving another one a home?

I've just this minute got home from the show and had a fab time, although would have liked more plant stalls outside.  Got some amazing bargains after 4 pm!
