    The flower seed sowing thread 2019-ac00462e-c7c7-4e3e-99c5-96d2074063ff.jpgA pinch of Zaluzianskya sown far too soon as a test for viability. (Packet dated 2017)
    They came up very quickly.
    Now what the devil am I going to do with them!! Poor little half hardy things!
    Still at least I know that it will be worth sowing them later on when Spring is here.

    Sowed some annual lupins, a packet of petunias, and geranium pratense (hardy mixed blues) seeds today, in pots on the windowsill.
    Endless wonder.

    Sowed some own saved seed from last year. All from plants that did particularly well and that I have enough seed to have another go later on if it should go wrong!!
    Nicandra (shoo fly plant), Snapdragons, orange Calendula.
    Holding off to sow gomphrena strawberry fields because I havent got many of them to gamble with.

    I've never grown annual lupins but I've just got myself some. I hope they put on a good show - I love lupins.

    Hmm, I've got didicus, nicotiana, bellls of Ireland...all half hardy. Sow now and keep on windowsills or wait? I need windowsills for my toms.
    Wondering if I get them germinated now indoors, would they be ok in the greenhouse.

    Almost certainly be fine in the GH once they're germinated and in to growth - best to keep an eye on the weather forecast just to be on the safe side, and bring them in over night if we get any really frosty weather.

    OK in greenhouse once they’ve germinated do you think?
