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

Seed sowing March 2021

I started my seed sowing in the greenhouse today. Sunflowers which I haven’t grown for a long time, Tithonia which are new to me. I think Monty Don on BBC Gardeners world grows them and I always like them so thought I would give them a go. Also some poppies probably more than I wanted as the seeds are tiny!

These are the tulips I have planted this year in pots/troughs with wallflowers that I grew from seed and pansies not grown from seed.

I like to try different tulips each year and like them in pots because in the ground apart from the fact they are likely to rot with clay soil and a lot of rain it means I don’t end up digging up them up when I’ve forgotten where they are.
