Having a go at a cut flower patch...

Hi peeps, you all seem to be doing well with your seedlings. I've got seedlings of 2 variety of cosmos going at the moment plus just a few sunflowers and several sweet peas. Today I have sown antihhrinium (excuse any errors in spelling), asters, rudbeckia and verbena. Can i ask you all which method you have found the best for larkspur germination? I've never sown it before and have spent the last few days umming and arggghing on what to do. ?????? ??????????????????

Ive also got phlox sown but nothing happening there at the moment. I'm also going to sow dill as that looks nice as a filler between flowers in a vase.

your vases look lovely Tootles, nice to see some colour indoors ????

Happy birthday Stagbeetle and Fruitcake, hope you got some nice pressies

Gina, Gardengirl and Stagbeetle, you've all been very busy and it' sounds as if you've got lots of success so far with your sowings!

Fruitcake, I'm sure you'll be fine with your chooks, you've taken some good precautions so far re their safety. The Internet as you know has a minefield of information and there's some interesting forum sites where lots of people are happy to share their experiences. Enjoy your girls when you get them but I'll warn you they are 'time wasters ' in as much as I can watch them and chat to them for hours!

Good morning everyone , thanks for the feedback.

Think I overdid the gardening on Sunday , my muscles are complaining loudly! It's lovely and sunny today, don't know for how long, a cloudy day with showers was forecast  Hoping to get more sowing done later and think id better transplant my toms into small pots.....not liking the look of them still ! 

Hope you all have a good  day

HI peeps, glad I found this thread coz I'm also gonna have a go at a cut flower bed....

Sounds like I need to get a move on, I haven't sown much compared to you all! I ve got two different types of cosmos which have germinated and some 'red sun ' sunflowers. I've bought a few dahlias ( a first for me) and some gladioli ( another first). 

Will give myself a kick up the rear and get sowing when I can this week ????, have only got one heated propogator( purchased just a couple of weeks ago) and that has peppers in it....really impressed with it and now wish I'd bought more. 

Love to see pics.....thanks for yours Tootles.... Look forward to seeing more!

Good news Fruitcake, how many chooks are you getting and which type? 

Ive taken my toms out of the propogator but they do look quite leggy with just the 2 leaves at the top, does this sound normal? Have just got them on the windowsill now.

more work planned on the paths tomorrow, will post pics soon.

Gina....my tomatoes are through in my propogator , just 2 leaves and about 2 inches tall. This is the first time I've used a propogator, when shall I take them out to grow on in the window, is it too soon now? Sorry if its a "blonde question" 

GWRS, lucky you! guessing you didn't get the rain today ????
