      Yesterday I sowed lupin avaluna, cosmos, sweet peas, and nicotiana lime green. I generally dislike acid green coloured flowers, which is why I hate the euphorbias, but this nicotiana took my fancy for some reason which I can't remember now.

      edit - how odd, a double post, but I only clicked the button once.

        Much to my surprise, the seeds we sowed a week ago (from a box which was a birthday gift a few years ago my daughter had put in the garage and forgotten about) have almost all germinated. We now have seedlings of Dianthus Sugar Baby, Orange Calendula and Wild Pansy. The Nasturtiums haven't germinated yet but they might still do so.

          Sowed tithonia and chamomile today. The nicotiana, cosmos and lupins are up - 4 days! They are sitting above a radiator though.

            I've sown some Sunflowers for the grandsons and some Livingston Daisies in trays in the greenhouse.
            If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

              Finally sowed my Sweet Peas last weekend (still earlier than last year!)
              Yesterday I sowed far too many Zinnia My Zinnia are starting to pop up, 4 days since sowing.
              Still so many more to do.

                  Same here, I've already lost my 2 seater sofa, dining table, coffee tables, half of the range, window sills and top of the fridge. And the hokey cokey each day is taking longer and longer!

                      Been inside planting seeds as it's been snowing and hailing all day. Managed to sow seed of various herbs plus some flowers:
                      • Cosmos - hot pink
                      • Rudbeckia - Cherokee sunset
                      • Morning Glory - split personality
                      • Zinnia - purple prince.

                              Hello, new to the forum

                              I've sown:

                              Cosmos - Pink Sensation
                              Snap dragons
                              Phlox

                              I have a few dahlia bulbs, is it too late to plant them?
