The one where I pot on a load of seedlings and run out of pots.
The one where the first bright green seedlings appear like a fanfare for the growing season.
The one where I start sowing plants outdoors and fill the propagators.
The propagator is fired up, and the sow-athon begins with Broad Beans, Sweet Peas, and Salvia.
The propagator takes its first batch of seeds, as I plan for a garden I don’t yet know.
The garden has grown a lot thanks to rain and lots of sunshine – with Foxgloves and others coming into bloom… plus a surge of bees cause a problem!!
Whilst the wettest drought continues with continuous heavy rain for yet another Bank Holiday, there’s still plenty of jobs to do indoors in preparation for this year’s garden.
Seedlings are thriving at the moment, and there are some surprise winter survivors in the garden, but also some unexpected casualties.
The first seeds have been sown in 2012 – a mixture of Aubergines, Peppers, Salvia and Sweet Peas.
Andrew looks back at the successes and failures of 2011, and plans for 2012!
