    Today I sowed some nasturtiums. I know it's very early, but I want the leaves for my tortoise when he wakes up from hibernation.

        Sowed some aquilegias in a pot and put outside, since they like a chill to get going and it's turned colder again today, down from 10C yesterday to 3C today.

          Sowed some Calibrachoa. Need to sort through my flower seeds to see what else I should be sowing now!
          Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds and a Giant Puffball!
          Always aim for the best result possible not the best possible result

                Sowed my sweetpeas today.
                They are in the greenhouse under cover in case of mice.
                One theygrminate Iwill putthm out in a sheltered area.

                And when your back stops aching,
                And your hands begin to harden.
                You will find yourself a partner,
                In the glory of the garden.

                  I sowed:
                  Aquilegia William Guinness
                  Echinacea
                  Echinacea Pow Wow Wild Berry
                  Gaillardia

                  I also sowed the rest of my packet of "Circus Clowns" snapdragons as the first batch has come up nicely and growing well.

                    Sowed some more sweet peas after the mice ate most of my autumn sown ones, plus some echinacea seeds.

                        Marigolds, cornflowers and heliotrope.
                        Mostly flowers, some fruit and veg, at the seaside in Edinburgh.

                          Sowed some Rudbeckia Marmalade. The Swan River Daisy (Bracyscome) I sowed earlier in the week have already germinated, I haven't grown them from seed before and didn't realise they'd be so quick!

                            Sowed some lupins a week ago. The first one or two are coming up today.
