Seed sowing 

by Wendy Syddall

It’s a dry day here in northwest England for a a change and having recently cleaned my pots and trays I decided to sow some seeds. The first of quite a few. I was given them both free with my gardeners world magazine and unlike my normal habit I’ve sown 2 per nodule in the hope I will get a good success rate. My friend has done very badly with free seeds from magazines so that is my reasoning for sowing more than normal.

It’s sweet peas and cosmos so far and both are now installed in their electric propagator.

Last years sweet peas while lovely and the scent amazing didn’t read the packet and therefore were much larger than expected and outgrew the support I gave them. I have been investigating better and taller support systems but yet to buy anything.

My next job is to transplant 2 of my dahlias to new pots as one has bust it’s pot and the other is not deep enough.
