Sowing and Transplanting

As well as everything else I am trying to keep up with (!!) I am still in the process of sowing new seeds and also transplanting seedlings that are ready to go into their new homes.

Firstly sowing, I have somehow managed to find the time (and room!!) to sow some COSMOS ‘Versailles Tetra’.  

These look a lovely colour, can’t wait to see them bloom!

I have always grown FRENCH MARIGOLDS before so when I was able to get my hands on some ENGLISH MARIGOLD ‘Neon’, I just had to give them a go 🙂


I was pottering round the tunnel when I realised that the ECHINOPS ‘Ruthenicus’ were ready to be transplanted into 9 cm pots.

So, armed with my trusty fork (!!) I managed to prick out the 11 seedlings really easily and they are now in their new homes.

  1. I’ve always liked Marigolds. My personal fave is Tagetes tenuifolia “Lemon Gem”. Its a Mexican Marigold with an amazing smell!
    We got them at work one year and they went down a storm with everyone that came into the park. It was really upsetting when they flatly refused to grow them again. >.>
