I’ve mentioned in a couple of recent posts that I’m growing a few plants in pots at home. I try this every year and usually have little, or no, success. This year I wasn’t going to bother but, once again, the temptation to try again got the better of me.
I sowed two squash Sunburst F1, one per pot, both of which germinated and the smaller one, as seen, is now at least 6″. I re-potted them this week and will plant them out in a few weeks time.
Four tomato Golden Queen were sown, one to a pot, and all germinated. These are all about 5″, have also been re-potted and will likewise go out in a few weeks.
Another tomato Red Robin I sowed just two seeds, one per pot, and both have grown. These are just a couple of inches, but only grow to around a foot or so. These have gone into 5″ pots and will be grown indoors.
All the above were sown just over four weeks ago and given the lack of sunshine and warmth since then I’m surprised, and pleased, at how well they’ve done sitting on the window sill.
Of the ten pot marigold seeds I was given only one failed to appear, and all the others are just starting to show their second pair of leaves. I’ve replanted one to see how it does as a indoor pot plant, the rest will go out on the plot with some going into the big pot that I had some daffodils in.
Here’s one of each showing what they looked like yesterday –
Have a good weekend!
