I didn’t do an On the Windowsill post last month as there was nothing to write about or show. The pot marigolds had finished flowering, as had the sunflower, and the cosmos showed no sign of flower buds before they started dying back.
I finally got round to sowing some Candytuft (Iberis umbellata) Fairy Mixed Colours seeds in a 4.5 in/11 cm pot last week, and much to my surprise they’ve nearly all germinated and started growing.
I only want a handful of seedlings but with this many I’ll probably try some in several different size pots to see how they do.
Next year I’ll be concentrating on pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites which I’ll dig up on the plot to bring home and replant into pots for the windowsill along with a couple of dwarf sunflowers from seed, including a Bambino one of which I grew earlier this year (see picture).
Have a good weekend, and take care!
