Late seed sowing

Posted: 14/04/2013 at 08:12
Recently checked the dates in the past when I sowed carrots, Beetroot, spring onions, etc etc. A few years I did that in mid Feb but mostly in first week in March. I used cloches and fleece and had runner beans growing under home made poly tunnels by April So, it feels late now. It is late. However, I'm not sure how well my early sowings would have done this year....too cold. Everything catches up, they say, as it warms up but I feel the urgency now to sow veg in the next few days. .....don't panic captain Mainwaring? Ha ha

Perennial wallflower

Posted: 13/04/2013 at 22:22
I grow all the perennial wallflowers as if they are annuals. I think they flower best when one to two year old but then become woody and exhausted. As joslow and others have said cuttings are so easy. Flowering plants produced in a season
My favourite....although its Variegata (always called it that) with green and white leaves and white flowers Beautiful foliage plant that's reasonably hardy here. Superb cheap summer impact
