            Alyssum, ageratum, poached egg plant (very old seed), calendula and Lilliput zinnias.
            Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

              Cosmos germination has been patchy so planted a few more cosmos bright light. Plan to put them in my new cut flower bed in the veg bit of the garden.

                Pity you're so far away. My poached egg plants which form a carpet under the pear tree and one of the apples self seed every year and try to keep spreading out. Everone that admires them gets invited to dig some up and take them away.

                  My french marigolds also failed so I have more seed coming in the post to try again.
                  Cosmos casanova sown today. I hadn’t realised they were shorter so have tall ones on the way.
                  Doing sunflowers as they chit, so far just the one has made a move but am ever hopeful.

                      All these are now seedlings
                      The camomile looks a bit weedy I've not grown it before so not sure what to expect.

                        Not one has appeared. I presume either they don't store well or I did something wrong.

                          Mine were slow appearing,then I watered from below instead of the top & they’ve appeared,the seed are a couple of years old two maybe three?

                            Sowed some osteospurmum, three types of sunflowers and some silene in trays for the new cut flower bed. Held of planing anything direct as forecast to be pretty cold overnight here next week.

                              That was 24th March and it is the only seed to germinate. We all seem to be having germination problems - it can't be all of us doing it wrong, so it must be poor quality seed or compost, or both.

                                A dozen cosmos casanova are up and on the other side of the seed tray the cosmos candy stripe sown 2 days later have already overtaken them. French marigolds sown 1 April on the windowsill are all up. The ones left in the gh are just starting to show. African marigolds sown today on windowsill. These are both fresh seed.
                                The chitted sunflower duly rotted when potted up. 8 more to go then its off to the garden centre.
