The Lupin seeds have germinated and are already forming true leaves. I have sown seeds of dwarf Nasturtium both a mixed packet and some with variegated leaves and deep red flowers. I have had a go with some dwarf Scabiosa seeds in modules. These are not easy to germinate in my experience so fingers crossed. The other flower seeds I have sown are Honesty, a few collected seeds from my sister.
I bought some bulbs from the pound shop. They are a white Anemone and out of twenty bulbs I have five decent plants which is not bad for a pound after all.
13th April – I have potted on most of my tomato seedlings. I have Black Cherry, Money-maker and Yellow Plum.
I have sown seeds of Beetroot Boltardy in modules today and covered them with Clingfilm. I have also sown runner beans Blue Lake, Black Bean Delinel and Kelvedon Stringless in pots. The White Lady will be sown direct. Down at the allotment all the potatoes are now in. They are Sharps Express, Vivaldi and Rocket. We have put most in bags but some in the ground. The peas and the broad beans are now in their permanent beds at the allotment and one on the new rhubarb crowns has been planted.
