Watching Seedlings Grow 2017

What seedlings have you got growing, here you can post pictures of your seedling to show all

I find it exciting when you look through your seed packets and picked what you want to grow, sow the seeds and then the wait begins watching the trays or pots most days

The very exciting bit the seeds germinating image

Now you have little seedlings to look after

    I love the seedlings thread Gardengirlimage.

    I haven't started anything off yet, some chilli seeds and lobelia will probably be my first at the end of Jan. The rest will be left until March ?

    What I can show is this years challenge of "novelty" Christmas gifts imageimage

    There are six varieties of tomato in that boximage. I usually grow only two. I'm mentally running out of space before I've even started.

    Kitty2 you have a good choice of plants to grow, I think I have to many free seeds - so space does run out but do like sowing seeds

    I also have antirrhinum, peonies and other cuttings and bits and bobs in this makeshift cold frame.

    Lots of flower seeds to sow later on too, I'm going to need a greenhouse at this rate!

    I collected a few Anthriscus sylvestris 'Ravenswing' from my plant last autumn and popped them in a little seed tray and left them on the low wall in a shady corner - the neighbours cat knocked it over and in a rush I just scooped it back into the tray and hoped for the best - yay! We have six little seedlings ! image

    What a relief dove, I've just googled it and it's a lovely plant, I bet it looks great in a vase with other flowers too.

    Great thread GG but can not add mine yet as all still in packets.  One thing i do know though is this year i will write the labels with pencil as all and i mean all mine washed off last year! image

    I'm starting some seeds in February.

    Antirrhinums, salvia,agastache, calendula,larkspur,liatris and marigolds, the rest will be in March. Does anyone know of a good site to help with the pronunciation of some of the flower names that isn't Americanised.  E.g. Agastache, ive heard so many different ways of saying this that I'm confused ( more than I usually am?)

    You could try ebay for labels they sell them cheap, I get some from labelsnthings when at garden shows, I have used milk bottles made labels - then you can just chuck them away when not needed or if use labels with pencil rubbs off well
