My passion in life is gardening and specifically growing flowers from seed

Month: February, 2015

Firstly let me say that 2 of my sweet peas that I sowed in the electric propagator has shown their faces this week which I am very excited about so only another 13 to go! 

I have crocuses and hellebores, my favourite winter flower flowering all over the garden so have taken some pictures to show you.

Sweet peas

I have sown some sweet peas today. This is only the second time I’ve done this and my previous attempt was unsuccessful. They are a dwarf bush variety called bijou mixed and are purple in colour. I soaked the seeds in warm water overnight as advised on the packet and put them in seed trays with damp compost this morning. They are now in my new electric propagator in the porch. I will let you know how I get on.
