Friday and yesterday were both rainy days so I spent some of the time potting rather plotting! Although I sow most of my seeds direct on the plot this year I’ve been determined to both start off, and grow, some plants at home.
Top of the list is tomatoes and as I said in that post I’ve gone for The Amateur and the ever popular Gardener’s Delight. Chiltern Seeds says of the first that it is a tried and tested outdoor bush variety which given a typical English summer is the one most likely to suceed.
I’ve sown some sweet peas Bouquet Blend which have longer stems and larger flowers making it an ideal variety for cut flowers.
Inspired by Tina’s post Sowing Coleus Seed I’ve ordered some of the variety Fairway which is an extra dwarf formula mixed. I notice reading through the Horticultural Society’s Show Schedule that listed under Other Floral Classes is Coleus, any kind in a container up to 130mm which is now on my list of possible exhibits.
Hopefully once these all start germinating I’ll then take some photos and let you know, and see, the good news!
The weather today, and through to at least Wednesday, looks like being mostly sunny and warm again so I’ll be back to plotting rather than potting!
