    Default Sharing the lurve - 2018 Advent

    This years advent is inspired by a few other threads

    Sharing the lurve
    Sow a Seed a Day for a year - Challenge
    DIY Advent Calendars

    So each day I will pick a seed from each of my seed boxes and sow them and where possible I will choose seeds I have from other grapes.

    Hope you enjoy and possibly join in. If VC can get indoor courgettes anything is worth a bash

    N.B I am being assisted by 2 small children so if anything is looking a bit squiffy it is obviously due to them - honestly

    Lurve it, NG and you little helpers.

    I have a black shoebag with a drawstring top with only enough space for my arm to go in so I can't cheat.

    Inside is a motley collection of old seeds - mostly flowers and I'm about to draw my first packets......................ooh the suspense!!!!

    Its Sanvitalia Procumbens "Orange Sprite" packed in 2011. AKA creeping Zinnia HHA

    Despite this genus dating back to the 18th Century, named after Professor Federica Sanvitali, it is seldom seen in summer gardens. Blooming over a long period, it is perfect for containers, baskets and the Flower Pouch. Its trailing habit offers a profusion of semi-double orange flowers with dark centres. Height: 10cm (4in).

    SP runs off to the polytunnel to fill a try with compost to sow her first random advent seed.
