Apart from flowers that have flopped I rarely cut any to bring home to put a vase. It’s not that I don’t grow enough so this year that’s what I hope to be doing.
I have some vases, or suitable containers, including these – a matt black china one, a stoneware jug, a tall glass and a plain white tea mug. Hopefully a couple of them will be filled with daffodils, tulips, pot marigolds, cosmos, cornflowers and sunflowers over the spring and summer.
There are two plants that hope to grow on the windowsill this year, one each flower and vegetable.
I have grown tomatoes at home but didn’t last year. They’ve mostly ended up rather taller, and with less fruit, than I’d hoped.
I’m trying again with Sweet n Neat Red. I’ll be successively growing a couple of these in a six inch pot which neatly fit into one of these small galvanised buckets that I was given recently.
Have a good week!
