    I adore African marigolds. Just love them but never much luck with growing any marigolds. They germinate on heat, grow half an inch then die :-(

    There are a few more I want to sow but will be away for a bit so will have to wait until I'm back. Brocade red tagetes, chrysanthemum, black eyed Susan, zinnia and cosmos. Never down any of these before so will be interesting.

    The sunflowers are 20" tall now
    most other stuff is 6-9 inches tall and going into growth phase and looking healthy

    (Everlasting sweet pea, perennial Flax, Oxeye Daisy, perenial blanket flower, mayfield giants (tickseed), purple coneflower, afghan poppy and nicotiana)


    the sun and rain have helped I think, veggies are doing pretty nice too now..

    sowed some more seeds around 2 weeks ago and am seeing the first sprouts coming up now
    (annual flax, mourning bride, scabiosa, rudbeckia, xeranthemum annum, godetia, barberton daisy and more I forget.

    Opium poppy - the ones that give large seed heads which are great in arrangements.
