    Had mammoth onion in 2inch plugs from Jan which seem to be yellowing so bit the bullet and planted them out into a bed.

    Lemongrass starting to root.
    Lovage potted on.
    Rosemary moved
    I cheated and bought two lemon thymes to replace the winter battered ones.

    Filled rest of bed 5.

    Pea shoots coming through finally. A cold spell followed by hot and dry I dont think has helped.
    Carrots coming through.
    Basil ...
  3. Over done the onions

    Flat parsley has rooted to base of pot so taking and risk and planting out 3 pots under cloches in raised bed at side of GH for protection.

    Pricked out spring onions into raised bed

    Comfrey from seed showing but I dont think is the best stuff to be using.

    3xBlack peppermint potted up into final container

    Hardening off Nasturtiums

    Oragano plant planted out
