Running out of room already!

More sowing and potting on today.

  • Two types of bedding dahlia
  • Marigolds (for the allotment)
  • Rudbeckia 'Rustic Dwarf' (grow every year)
  • Ricinus 'Impala'
  • Leek 'Jaune de Poitou' (yellow leaved, early)
  • Leek 'Bleu de Solaise' (blue leaved, late - withstands frosts well)

What's coming up:

  • radishes
  • dahlia seeds sown last week
  • Swiss Chard
  • second sowing of red peppers

What's been potted on:

  • Cabbage 'Primo'
  • Brussels Sprout 'Trafalgar'

Weather: around 12degC, overcast this afternoon.

No trips down the allotment this weekend, as we went to visit Dad. He gave us a beautiful orchid plant, which is currently sitting on the dining room table. I'm going to have to get to grips with orchids, as this is the second we have now. My sister in law has a wonderful way with them, including unusual and difficult to grow ones. A new challenge!

Coming out in the garden:

  • large daffodils
  • both camellias are now in flower
  • the Kerria planted last year is just starting to flower.

Next weekend, I'll have to get the early potatoes planted doen on the plot. A busy time of year!
