Spring time bulbs

by Wendy Syddall

It’s a lovely sunny day in northwest England and so I write this sat in the garden listening to a few birds and a loud neighbour across the road.

I have been busy sowing seeds in the greenhouse. Yesterday I sowed pink cosmos and also white ones (Sarah raven variety), good for cut flowers. I alto sowed some bright pink zinnia. I have often sowed these and they are normally very easy and flower all summer. My cornflowers nearly all came up and about half of the Agrostemma, a pretty white flower. My scabious haven’t bothered at all so have sowen dome new seeds in the same tray. 

To finish a couple of pictures of bulbs planted late last year.
