My Seedlings

    You can never have too many greenhouses, i am with greenhouses as some women are with shoes! Its so rewarding when you prick out then pot up and finally plant out, be very careful of slugs though, that is very disheartening.

    Isn't it wonderful; am growing Delphiniums from seed this year as am completely addicted to them and it was starting to become an expensive habitimage

    Plants are so expensive, you can get loads from a packet of seeds, and they don't take that long to flower, next year they will be lovely, do watch for snails though, they will have them overnight.

    It is addictive isn't it!

    Artjak - how are you getting on with Delphiniums from seed? I love them too but I have only gone as far as buying the smallest garden centre ones and potting on to grow on myself. Would love to do some from seed.

  • I wish my seed trays looked like these!!

    I have a small cheap plastic greenhouse and I'm mostly just getting problems from mine, can you come and show me how to do this properly so mine look like yours!!??

    Yours are looking great Mickey. It's so exciting when they come up (and so heart breaking when a horrid slug gets them!).

    Here are mine. But photo was about 2 weeks ago.

  • Busy-Lizzie wow looking great and yes those naughty slugs are a nightmare.

  • Update on my seedlings.

    Cornflowers thinned out and potted on Friday all apart from two looking great.
