    It's the best feeling isn't it? We've been waiting three weeks for our Parsley to make an appearance, and finally today it's said hello!

    I've been growing seeds for about 40 years, ( I'm sure some on here, even longer) but I'm sure I speak for us all when I say, you never ever lose the excitement of seeing seeds you've sown,germinate.

    Well done Mikey, you are doing just fine.

    I agree with Hosta, you could go to GC and pay a fiver for something they have grown, or watch your own taking shape,   no contest.

  • Thanks Lyn I agree with you both to, apart from the plants that we're already here I am growing everything from seed at the moment so more smiles to come I hope image

    I'll admit, I have bought several plants to pot up that I didn't grow myself, I like them, but there was no person prouder than I, when I got to plant up my dahlia's and my Zinnia plants from their tiny little propagator that I'd planted, and I'd watch grow. They're little green babies... kinda!image

  • SweetPea I have fell in love with dahlia's there next on my wish list image also this will be my first summer in my new gardening hobby so no doubt when I visit the garden centre this year I more than likely will not be able to help my self but buy if something catches my eye image
