This post details the plants I now have on the windowsill, having made a few changes over the past couple of weeks.
I’ve taken the dwarf tomato Red Robin to the plot as it’s now far too tall, having grown to around 18 in/45 cm. I think that a lack of direct sunlight for much of the day is the main reason so I’ve conceded defeat on trying to grow one and won’t be trying again next year.
The primrose I was given early in the year is looking healthy with plenty of new leaves appearing.
It would be nice to know the variety as the label just read primrose acaulis. A picture of it flowering can be seen here.
I dead-headed the small cosmos Casanova White but it then started dying back so I sowed the last two seeds both of which germinated and the first true leaves have recently appeared.
Further to the May post I sowed four dwarf sunflowers Bambino and two Pacino’s Gold, all of which germinated are growing well with four pairs of true leaves now showing. I’m growing one of each at home and the others will be going out on the plot.
The two Pot Marigolds Fruit Twist grew too tall so I’ve also taken these to the plot. The Flighty’s Favourite that I mentioned in the mid-June post has remained around 8 in/ 20 cm tall and the third flower bud has yet to open. It’s been joined by another, larger plant (see photo) I dug up and bought home recently which has three flower buds showing, one which is just opening. It’s a yellow flower with a dark centre, the same as the other one.
At the moment I’m well pleased with the plants I have on the windowsill, and hope that they all continue to flourish over the coming months.
Have a good weekend, and take care!
