    Good morning all image.

    Wow you've all been so busy, I sat last weekend and ordered my seeds and was going to spend this weekend researching which ones needed a chill and I could sow.

    I'm so glad the days are drawing out but still very wary of the threatened snow so I think I'm going to wait a couple of weeks.  I made a few mistakes last year and was too late for most things and had some lovely toms but they never rippened so decided to keep a journal this year to make sure I keep notes (or try to) and learn by my mistakes.

  • My tomatos ars doing well. I had a look at loads of different pages and they said i was ok to plant in january. Even this site said do it between jan and march. They have slowed down so very happyimage

Lisa, I have my Aguilegia sown and nothing yet but they do take a while. I have been given some larkspur but need to see when they are to be planted. Im quite enjoying it image
