Seedling time



  • Yes an interesting mix. The garden has lots of aconitums already in the garden.But that does give me a start on what to start at least. I think I will set up a heated bed in the greenhouse and go from there. image

    I'll be starting my rudbeckias, echinaceas and scabious off in an indoor propagator this weekend if thats any helpimage.  They will be pricked out into trays in the unheated GH at the end of March and will then go into the garden in late May.  This timing has worked well for me over the last few yearsimage

    As a general rule, most of us tend to start stuff too early, I know I do.

    Waiting another couple of weeks, will do no harm, and the seeds will soon catch up, with those sown earlier.

  • Don't forget Cosmos.  They will fill any border with flowers until the first frosts and are generous with their seed so you only have to buy once.  New types out now with picotee edging etc.  Grew them last year and they went HUGE.  A definite must in my eyes.

    I don't have a propergator, never have, I sowed Echinacea amongs others on the 1st Feb and they are up. That's just on the kitchen worktop.
