Today has been another busy day, but this time I had the sunshine to keep me company.
I needed some laundry products so after dropping Will off at school this morning, I did a bit of shopping and came back with more than I went for (nothing unusual there!). So along with the washing detergent, these little beauties managed to make it into my shopping bag 🙂
Couldn’t help myself, they were all at bargain prices so it would’ve felt wrong not to have indulged 😉
Then, back home to start on some sowing. Firstly, I did 4 x 40 cell trays of CLEOME ‘Rose Queen’.
I really do hope these germinate well as they look like they are going to be a beautiful flower.
Then I sowed, one full size seed tray of seeds from a lovely light blue DELPHINIUM which someone had kindly given me. The original plant look like ‘delight’, but we shall wait and see. I also sowed one full size seed tray of DIANTHUS ‘Panda Mix’. These seeds came from plants that both Mum and I had grown in our own gardens last year.
Mum loves these DIANTHUS so fingers crossed I can do her enough for another stunning display this year.
I took all my new seed trays up to Mums for safe keeping in her greenhouse and whilst I was there, I grabbed the ASTER ‘Duchess Yellow’ seedlings that I had grown at the end of last summer as they needed transplanting.
I managed to get 120 viable plants which I put into 40 cell trays (to sell as plugs). I also plan to keep some of these for myself 😉
